"You have got to have a short memory," said the bench boss, reflecting on the loss at Altrincham.
"We have eight games left, every weekend is the same for us with regards to importance."
Manchester scored two goals inside the last ten minutes to claim the points against a team without Jordon Owens (suspended - he will miss next weekend's titantic tussle with Belfast Giants and Cardiff Devils who currently are tied at the top of the division) and Mark Matheson (injured.)
Oppostion coach Ryan Finnerty described the roller-coaster game as "incredibly entertaining for the fans, nerve-wracking for coaches. It had a bit of everything."
