Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL - SHELDAN KEAY

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town for­ward Con­nor Jen­nings felt Satur­day’s 2-0 win against Brain­tree was vi­tal af­ter suf­fer­ing de­feat in their pre­vi­ous game.

The Silk­men re­turned to win­ning ways thanks to the hard-fought vic­tory, with that match against Brain­tree com­ing just a few days af­ter Macc had suf­fered a 1-0 home loss to Bar­row.

Jen­nings was glad to bounce back and re­turn to win­ning ways at the Moss Rose, and was also happy to con­trib­ute with a goal.

“It’s a bril­liant three points. Es­pe­cially af­ter los­ing our game last week so hope­fully we can kick on move up the ta­ble a bit more now,” he told the club’s of­fi­cial web­site.

“It was a scrappy first half and even bits of the sec­ond half were quite scrappy, but we kept go­ing and tried to get the ball down to pass it about and it even­tu­ally paid off.”

Since ar­riv­ing on loan at Mac­cles­field from Na­tional League ri­vals Tran­mere Rovers, Jen­nings has struck up a good part­ner­ship with fel­low striker Chris Hol­royd.

The two men both got on the score­sheet against Brain­tree, and Jen­nings is glad to be play­ing along­side him.

“Since I’ve come in me and Chris and get­ting the chances and it’s just been the fi­nal prod­uct that was miss­ing,” he said.

“We’ve both scored against Brain­tree though and I’m happy for Chris that he man­aged to get a goal.

“Hope­fully it’s the start of many more for both of us but the most im­por­tant thing is we have the three points.”
