Thir­teen not un­lucky for tip-top ton-maker

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORS -

THIR­TEEN didn’t prove un­lucky for clean-sheet spe­cial­ist Rhys Tay­lor, who marked his cen­tury with another flaw­less day.

The Mac­cles­field goal­keeper marked reach­ing three fig­ures in Silk­men colours with his lat­est cru­cial mo­ment.

With his side two goals to the good and with 20 min­utes to play Tay­lor was sharply off his line to thwart Ben Tom­lin­son and pre­serve the cush­ion, which was added to in in­jury-time by Matthew Barnes- Homer’s late goal.

And man­ager John Askey was in no doubt that Tay­lor’s save was vi­tal in the vic­tory.

“It was such an im­por­tant save from Rhys, that could have changed the game,” said Askey, who was de­lighted to see his keeper sign a con­tract to stay at the Moss Rose un­til the end of the sea­son. “Rhys has shown his worth yet again, I was re­ally pleased that he’s signed this week. But you couldn’t re­ally sin­gle any­body out, they were all ter­rific.”
