Wild left fuming after Macclesfield loss

Date published: 21 January 2019

Caretaker boss Pete Wild was left fuming after watching his Oldham Athletic side let a goal lead slip to lose 2-1 at Macclesfield on Saturday.

Despite a very early penalty from new signing Urko Vera, goals either side of half time turned the game in favour of the hosts.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Wild said: “It was uncharacteristic of us, but we were poor all over the park.

“Too many people didn't turn up, too many people thought they could come here and just roll them over.

“We made a great start with the early goal, but we simply weren't good enough all over the park.

“We were sloppy, players not playing to their strengths, players thinking they're things that they're not.

“Maybe because we've done well in the past few weeks people are getting carried away with themselves, but that's slapped [us] back down to earth today.”

It was Wild’s first loss in caretaker charge of the club, after going unbeaten in the four games since Frankie Bunn was dismissed.
