Silk­men’s feet on ground for Brom­ley trip

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH -

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town de­fender Neill Byrne in­sists the team are keep­ing their feet firmly on the ground de­spite back-to-back wins in the Na­tional League.

The 21-year-old net­ted his first goal for the club on Satur­day when he scored dur­ing the 2-1 vic­tory over Wok­ing.

That win has seen the Silk­men pick up max­i­mum points since the late de­feat to Ch­ester, but Byrne is re­main­ing fo­cused ahead of this week­end’s clash with Brom­ley.

“It’s good to get two wins but you never want to get ahead of your­self, we just want to keep go­ing and not look too far ahead, it’s just about the next game against Brom­ley,” he said.

“I think ob­vi­ously Ch­ester was a down day for all of us and we knew we needed to get over it and we showed that against Grimsby and Wok­ing.

“We did well against Wok­ing as they’re a team that likes to play a bit of football and are a lit­tle bit dif­fer­ent.

“They had been on a very good run so we al­ways knew it was go­ing to be a tough game but we came out with the three points.

“It’s good to get a goal as it’s al­ways nice to get on the score sheet and it ended up be­ing the win­ner so I’m happy to help the team out.”

Vic­tory over Brom­ley could see Mac­cles­field climb into the top half of the ta­ble, but Byrne is ex­pect­ing a dif­fi­cult match.

“They’ve just come up into our league and have shown so far that they are a strong team,” he said.

“I think we know it will be a hard game as there’s no team in this league that will give you an easy match.

“It’s go­ing to be tough go­ing down there but hope­fully we can get the three points.”
