Danny’s in to boost Silk­men push

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL - SHELDAN KEAY

DANNY White­head says he has re­turned to Mac­cles­field Town to help the club reach the National League play-offs this sea­son.

White­head has joined the Silk­men on loan un­til the end of the sea­son, after he orig­i­nally de­parted Macc to join Wi­gan Ath­letic back in Jan­uary 2016.

First-team chances have been lim­ited for him at the DW Sta­dium, so he is glad to now be back at Mac­cles­field and hopes to play a key part for the rest of the cam­paign.

“I’m very happy. It’s im­por­tant to get some games now be­cause I’ve not played for a while. I’m happy to be back and hope­fully look­ing to get the team into the play-offs,” he told the club’s of­fi­cial web­site.

“I’d been speak­ing to the gaffer pre­vi­ously and he told me ‘if ever you need to get some game time, and want to come back, you are more than wel­come to’ which was good, so I was happy to come back.

“Last sea­son started off started off well and ob­vi­ously that’s when the move came about in Jan­uary.

“I came back on loan and it went well again so I just wanted to come back here and con­tinue to do well with the club.”

De­spite leav­ing the Moss Rose, White­head has kept a con­stant eye on Mac­cles­field to see how they are per­form­ing in the league. After a good start to the sea­son, a slight blip saw Macc fall off the pace, but they have now won three of their last four games to leave them in eighth place and put them back in con­tention.

With that in mind, White­head hopes that the good run con­tin­ues over the com­ing weeks and months.

“At the start of the sea­son Macc were fly­ing again. There were just a few bad re­sults here and there but at least we’re still within reach of the play-offs, and with games in hand it’s very easy to get back into there,” he said.

“This is a club that wants to go back into league foot­ball. It’s got great in­ten­tions, and it’s just about us turn­ing in the re­sults.”
