Silkmen’s feet on ground for Bromley trip
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.”
