Keep the spirit up says Pilks

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT -

MATTHEW BO­S­TOCK GE­ORGE Pilk­ing­ton has spoke of the im­por­tance of Macc main­tain­ing their high spir­its if they are to achieve a play-off spot.

The Silk­men’s cen­tre-back spoke about how pleased he was for the team to get back on track with a goal­less draw against Wrex­ham on Satur­day.

“It was a fair a re­sult over­all, it was a tough game. They had a cou­ple of chances, they hit the post and had a cou­ple of scram­bles off cor­ners but the lads worked re­ally hard and it was nice to keep a clean sheet. It’s some­thing to build on look­ing for­ward.

“Our form has slid down a bit re­cently but we have been work­ing re­ally hard on the train­ing pitch and hope­fully now we have turned a cor­ner. We have 12 games left so we need to try and ac­cu­mu­late as many points as we can.

“I think the mood among the lad is great and we worked hard for each other, which is what you need to do in this league. We just need to build on the clean sheet and try and get an­other one next week and the week af­ter.”

On Satur­day’s trip to Al­trin­cham, Pilk­ing­ton said: “It’s al­ways a hard game. Form sort of goes out the win­dow in those games re­ally be­cause they are on a good run, but we just need to make sure we roll our sleeves up for ev­ery game be­tween now and the end of the sea­son.”
