Win­ning cen­te­nary for Fitz­patrick

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL - SHELDAN KEAY

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town de­fender David Fitz­patrick ad­mits Fri­day’s 1-0 win over Dover will al­ways be a spe­cial game to him as it marked his 100th ap­pear­ance for the club.

The Silk­men took all three points in the match af­ter Ty­rone Marsh net­ted the win­ning goal.

Fitz­patrick was proud to make it a cen­tury of ap­pear­ances for Mac­cles­field, es­pe­cially af­ter earn­ing the vic­tory.

“I only found out the day be­fore the game that it was my 100th game so it was a bit of a sur­prise be­cause I have only been here for two years.

“I’m re­ally pleased with that and to mark it with a win is cru­cial,” he said.

”We’ve come up against aerial pres­sure in the last few games so we know what to ex­pect in this league, but we still tried to play a lit­tle bit in the sec­ond half and I thought over­all we did okay.

“We had them penned in for about 25 min­utes in the sec­ond half but you have got to ex­pect them to start pump­ing it in a lit­tle bit more to­wards the end. They went very di­rect and are big lads but we stood up well.”

It turned out to be a per­fect week­end for Mac­cles­field as they also de­feated Ch­ester 2-0, mean­ing they are now up to 10th in the Na­tional League ta­ble.

Fitz­patrick was glad to make it two wins in quick suc­ces­sion, and thought it was vi­tal in or­der to make sure they stay in con­tention with the other pro­mo­tion­chas­ing teams in the division.

“We said ear­lier in the week the two games in Bank Hol­i­day are cru­cial and we need to pick up points quick,” he said.

“We don’t want to fall too far be­hind even though it is early, so it has been a good week­end.”
