Green tar­get­ing stylish fin­ish

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT - SHELDAN KEAY

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town U18 coach Robert Green hopes his team can end the sea­son in style as they ap­proach the fi­nal matches of the cam­paign.

Macc are float­ing around midtable in the NWYA Di­vi­sion One, with the team re­cently held to a 2-2 draw at home to Vaux­hall Mo­tors U18.

The Silk­men had to come from 2-0 down at half-time to res­cue a point in that game, and Green was pleased with his team’s come­back.

“I think we did de­serve at least a draw, but go­ing two goals down is not great from our lads,” he said.

“They need to start sharper, which is some­thing that my­self and Paul have tried to work on.

“There are a few games to go now and we want to fin­ish as high as we can.”

Vaux­hall were 2-0 up at the in­ter­val, but Macc sprung into life in the sec­ond half and pulled one back through Luke Mon­aghan.

It got even bet­ter for the Silk­men when they lev­elled things up through Cory Bent­ley Knight when he fired past the op­po­si­tion goal­keeper.

The Mac­cles­field young­sters had op­por­tun­ties to win it in the clos­ing stages, but in the end they had to set­tle for a point.
