Liam McDonald reacts to Macclesfield defeat
*'We've got to be more clinical in front of goal' -by Luke Turner*
PUBLISHED: 10th Sep 17

Solihull Moors manager Liam McDonald bemoaned the chances his side missed as they fell to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Macclesfield Town.

Scott Wilson scored the only goal of the game against the run of play, shortly after Moors skipper Darren Carter saw a penalty kick saved.

McDonald said: “We’re disappointed. Macclesfield were good in the first-half and the key was staying in it because we started poorly. We defended well and dealt with a lot.

“We were the better side in the second-half, we've missed a hatful of chances and we've got to be more clinical in front of goal.

“On the flip side of things, we win and we lose together. In the second-half, we dominated for a good 20 minute spell and next thing you know, they've scored.”

The games are coming thick and fast for The Moors and McDonald sensed that his players were feeling the effects of the hectic Saturday-Tuesday schedule.

“The lads are tired, I could see that in the last 15 minutes, but we’ll dust ourselves down and be back out on Tuesday looking to make sure we’re more clinical in front of goal,” He continued.

“They've (Macclesfield) probably had two or three chances today and we've probably had five or six - that's the difference at the minute where Macclesfield are and where we are, we need to be more clinical.

“We've missed a penalty again which is frustrating.”

Despite the defeat, there were positives to take from what was overall a pretty tight encounter and one that Solihull could've easily been on the winning side of - but McDonald questioned why his men seem to start so differently in each half.

“Why do we start the second-half really well? We’re renowned now for having good second-half’s. Why do we come out (in the first-half) tentative and slow to things?

“We need to be better in the first-half, even on Tuesday night we weren't great in the first 15/20 minutes.

“We were edgy, we were mistiming our headers and misplacing our passes. We’ll get better and I know I sound like a broken record, but we've even had George Carline missing today. We found out this morning that he was doubtful.

“We’ll be better and we just look forward to Tuesday now to get out there and put it right.”
