Striker’s fight for start­ing place

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT -

MATTHEW Bar­nesHomer be­lieves Mac­cles­field’s good start to the sea­son will make it tough for him to force his way into the start­ing XI.

The 28-year-old striker has re­joined his for­mer club on loan from White­hawk, and marked his first game back with a goal against Dart­ford on Satur­day.

De­spite that late equaliser, Bar­nesHomer knows he will have to be at his best if he wants to be a reg­u­lar in the Silk­men team.

Speak­ing after the Dart­ford draw, he said: “The lads here have been work­ing re­ally hard and get­ting some great re­sults, so I know I have to do a lot to get into the side.

“I’m re­ally pleased to be here and, to be hon­est, I’d have liked to have joined in the sum­mer.

“It’s been a while since I was here, but I liked it at Mac­cles­field, we had some great games that sea­son and I’m look­ing for­ward to get­ting to work.

“I’ve re­ally missed the day-to-day in­volve­ment of be­ing at a full-time club, so I have en­joyed the cou­ple of days I’ve been here so far and can’t wait to get fully back into full-time foot­ball and earn my­self a place in the side.”

The striker was pre­vi­ously at Mac­cles­field dur­ing the 2012/13 sea­son, scor­ing 21 goals dur­ing the cam­paign.
