Silkmen won’t get carried away
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.”
