Crucial return to winning ways after defeat
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.”
