MAC­CLES­FIELD Town de­fender David Fitz­patrick in­sists the play­ers won’t be get­ting car­ried away de­spite their good run of form.

The Silk­men have won seven of their last ten matches, leav­ing them fifth in the Na­tional League ta­ble.

Pro­mo­tion ap­pears to be a real pos­si­bil­ity for Macc this year, but Fitz­patrick is keep­ing his feet firmly on the ground.

“I’m not used to be­ing at this end of the ta­ble in the Na­tional League but I’ll be tak­ing it game by game and making sure we don’t look too far ahead,” he said.

“We’ll be do­ing all we can to stay in the play-offs but we know it’s go­ing to be tough as we’ve played a few more games than the rest.

“Hope­fully some of those re­sults go our way though and we keep win­ning games and keep­ing clean sheets.”

Fitz­patrick re­cently signed a new deal that keeps him at the Moss Rose for the re­main­der of the cam­paign, and the 25-year-old is lov­ing his time with Mac­cles­field.

“Ever seen I came into the team it’s been great and I’m glad to get the new deal over the line,” he said.

“Talks had been go­ing on for a few weeks and we came close to when my old deal ex­pired, so I’m now look­ing for­ward to en­joy­ing the rest of my time here.

“I think I’ve played quite steady this sea­son and one of the big­gest parts of my game is con­sis­tency so on a per­sonal level I’ve been pleased.”
