Going up still top priority
PAUL Turnbull insists earning promotion remains his side’s priority this season.
A resurgence over the past two months means the Silkmen are just three points from the play-off spots, having picked up 35 points from their 22 matches so far this season.
It comes after a slow start to the campaign, but skipper Turnbull believes they can continue their fine form.
“We have got to keep this going and the main thing is to get into the play-offs and stay there,” he said. “We need to keep winning games and keep our home form going, and if we can nick wins away from home then that would be brilliant.
“It’s a fantastic group of lads we have here as they are level-headed and there are no big time players in there, so it’s a great honour to be captain, and our goal is to keep climbing the table.”
Macc made it three victories in a row when they defeated Bromley 2-0 on Saturday, but Turnbull felt they rode their luck in the game.
“In the first half I thought we were poor as they were first to everything and we couldn’t get going,” he said. “It’s obviously nice to get the three points but I’d rather play better as I thought we were very sloppy. It took us a while to get going but then in the second half we improved and I think we deserved the win in the end.”
