ALL roads lead to Doncaster this weekend for Pete Wild and Oldham as they head back to the training ground to right the wrongs from the defeat at struggling Macclesfield.

Latics caretaker boss Wild could not contain his fury in his post-match comments on Saturday after his side went ahead early through Urko Vera’s penalty on debut, only to lose out 2-1.

Macclesfield’s good form under new boss Sol Campbell continued as Harry Smith equalised before Scott Wilson won it for the relegation-zone side – a first defeat for the Latics since Boxing Day.

“We are going to Doncaster to try and win the game and to try and put the wrongs right from Macclesfield because, if we don’t do that, we’re going to come a cropper again,” commented Wild.

“Hopefully the defeat is a one-off. Hopefully we can get back to the way we’ve been playing, because let’s be honest, if we play like that against Doncaster we’re going to get the same result.

“Things have got to change this week. We’ve got to get back on the training ground and get our heads back around what we’re good at – and get back to people doing what they’re good at, and not thinking they’re something they’re not.”

The abrupt halt to Oldham’s good form had looked unlikely early on at Moss Rose as Callum Lang’s shot was blocked by Miles Welch-Hayes’ arm and Ollie Yates pointed to the spot – Vera lashing down the middle.

Macclesfield levelled on the stroke of half time as Smith pounced to turn and fire low into the far corner from 18 yards.

And the Silkmen took the lead in the second half when Wilson raced on to Callum Maycock’s long ball and coolly lofted over the onrushing Daniel Iverson.

Oldham were reduced to 10 in stoppage time when last-man Mohammed Maouche tripped Tyrone Marsh to crown a disappointing afternoon for the visitors.

Wild continued: “Let’s hope the Macclesfield game was a blip because we can’t turn out performances like that every week.

“Let’s hope we’re back to where we were this week. I will put things right on the training ground.

“You learn more in a defeat than a victory and for us it’s about getting back on the training ground and putting right what went wrong and making sure we’re ready.”
