Aaron Wildig is focusing on the positives from Tuesday night's 2-0 defeat to Barrow AFC.

The midfielder reiterates that the Shrimps created enough chances to win the game and goals will come.

"There are positives we can take from the game," the 27-year-old said after the game. "A lot of the first half was good, we said at half time we should have been two or three up because we had a few one v ones and other chances but we just didn't take them.

"The goal for us to go behind is comical. It's one of those where you're not really sure what's happened but it's ended up in the net and the rest of the game wasn't good enough from our point of view.

"Barrow played expansive stuff, you could see what they wanted to do, get their deep lier on the ball and hit diagonal balls to their wide men who stayed high and wide.

"We coped with it well first half, Baz didn't have a save to make and we got in on numerous occasions on the turnover so if you go and get the first goal, I'd have expected us to win quite comfortably but the longer you go without taking your chances the more likely it is that it will be a disappointing night and that's what it was in the end.

"At this stage, you have to take the positives, we're not playing for anything at the moment other than fitness and in that, you want to try and find some form so we'll move onto the next game."
