Kingsley James admits Macclesfield Town were left disappointed after suffering a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Solihull Moors on Easter Monday.
The Silkmen looked in control for much of the game, taking the lead early in the second half through Chris Holroyd, but three goals in the final 15 minutes saw the visitors leave Moss Rose with all three points.
Speaking after the match, Kingsley said: “We should have been 1-0 up in the first half; we created some good chances, but then when we took the league we stopped playing really.
“We probably didn’t work hard enough to keep the lead and it showed – we conceded three poor goals, but we’ve got to move on from it. We’ve got another game Saturday so we just need to finish the season as well as we can”.
“We knew we could do better. I thought we controlled the game in the first half really, we had the majority of play, and then we got the goal early on and we should have kicked on from there but instead it put us back a little bit”.
John Askey’s men now prepare for an away trip to Lincoln on Saturday, and Kingsley admits that Macclesfield could yet get a result at the league leaders.
“It’s going to be a massive game. They’re on a high, they’ll be brimming with confidence and there’ll be a big crowd there so it’s a good game to play in for everyone. It’s one of the games that you want to play in, and you want to do well against these teams.
“On our day we’re as good as anyone in this league and we’ve proved that time and time again but we keep coming up short, and it needs to be rectified if we’re going to get where we need to be”.
