Let’s show what we can do says Wat­son

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT -

STEVE Wat­son hopes Mac­cles­field Town can re­mind the rest of the divi­sion what they are ca­pa­ble of when they play cham­pi­ons Cheltenham Town.

The Silk­men host Cheltenham at the Moss Rose on Satur­day, with the Robins al­ready pro­moted to League Two.

They have lost just five of their 44 matches this sea­son, but Wat­son in­sists Macc are ca­pa­ble of pick­ing up three points if they play at their best.

“We play the team that’s go­ing up so it’s a chance to put a lit­tle re­minder out there about how good we can be,” he said.

“I’ve been work­ing a lot on TV cov­er­ing this league and I’ve not seen a bet­ter team than us when we play the foot­ball that we play and when we work as hard as we do as we’re solid at the back.”

Mac­cles­field head into the match on the back of a 1-0 vic­tory over Guise­ley last week­end, but Wat­son didn’t think it was a vin­tage per­for­mance.

“We set high stan­dards in the last nine games but we gave the ball away too much against Guise­ley,” he said. “We’ve played bet­ter and lost games so we’ll take an ugly 1-0. It was a hard game and it can be tough when you know you can’t get in the play-offs or go down.”
