Feet on ground for Macc squad

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT - SHELDAN KEAY

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town de­fender Jared Hodgkiss in­sists the team will be stay­ing grounded de­spite sit­ting top of the Na­tional League ta­ble.

The Silk­men are one point clear of sec­ond placed Dover Ath­letic after win­ning nine of their 15 matches so far this sea­son.

Hodgkiss is pleased with how his side have per­formed over the past month, but says it is too early in the sea­son to be get­ting car­ried away with them­selves.

“Teams are go­ing to look at us and think that we’re do­ing pretty well, but at the end of the day, it’s only Oc­to­ber,” he told the club’s of­fi­cial web­site.

“There’s a big dif­fer­ence be­tween be­ing top now and in April.

“We’ve got to take con­fi­dence from it but we’ve got to make sure we keep our feet on the ground as well.

“We’ve got a great chance to build a run, and if we’re not go­ing into games with con­fi­dence now, when we’re top of the league, then we’re never go­ing to be.”

Hodgkiss joined Mac­cles­field from Kid­der­min­ster Har­ri­ers in the sum­mer and has now ce­mented him­self a place in the start­ing line-up hav­ing been forced to miss the first 11 games of the sea­son through in­jury.
