Go­ing up still top pri­or­ity

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT - SHELDAN KEAY

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.”
