Thoughts of Mac – Looking forward
Another blank Saturday last week (due to snow) meant three blank Saturdays since the start of 2018 for the Whites. It’s hard to get momentum going and of course it impacts on the players too so what did the Whites actually do last Saturday?
“Because we are going to playing Saturday Tuesday Saturday for the next number of weeks we decided to let the boys have time off with their families” answered Mac. He added; “It is so frustrating, the season seems as if it hasn’t taken place this year for some strange reason and realistically with the 13 league games we have still to play plus the quarter final of the Intermediate cup and possibly more games if you get through, you have half-a-season to play within a matter of six or seven weeks!
But we are going to get on with it. The Queen’s game is massive to us now; I really do believe that because Queen’s and Dundela are both winning (currently) in the league, it is making the task (of promotion) harder but don’t get me wrong because I do believe that we can still push for it. The top six is a reality at the minute but the chance to take the club to a semi-final is brilliant. It is a massive game and we are preparing for that. It’s a one-off game but ideally we can get ourselves through and have a semi-final to look forward too. If we can get a few more league wins and get steadied in the top six then I think the pressure will be off a wee bit and if we can stay on the coat-tails of the leaders and be in there with five games to go, being within five to six points, then you have a massive opportunity there to be promoted.”
The big game against Queen’s University Belfast, kicks-off at The Dub this Saturday at 2.30 pm.
