Harry: “We Are All Buzzing At The Minute”

20 December 2018

Harry Smith admitted he was ecstatic following Macclesfield Town’s 2 - 0 win over Crawley Town on Saturday.

The victory was Sol Campbell’s first win as Silkmen Manager and it maintains the rich vein of league form that we currently enjoy.

Smith believes the three points against Crawley were a mere reward for their efforts.

“I was delighted, we thoroughly deserved it. First half you’ve got to play to the conditions and we wanted to play with the wind to get an advantage and then go into the second half and try to keep that.

“But we’ve managed to add to it, which I thought was deserved so we were buzzing all round.”

Smith’s second-half strike brought his tally up to three league goals for the season, but the striker stated any personal achievement is a bonus, as long as the team are winning games.

“It’s always nice for a striker to be scoring goals but I’m more focused on the team getting three points. I was delighted for Elliot to get his goal! It’s more about the team for me personally but yes, it’s always nice to score.”

With Campbell’s reign now surpassing the three week stage, the Manager has had time to instill his philosophy and ideas upon his players.

And Smith revealed the lads are enjoying life under the new Manager.

“It was set in stone before the new gaffer come in which steadied us brilliantly. The gaffer has come in and been fantastic for the two to three weeks he has been here.

“Mark’s come in and he’s been top notch - the lads love it and we’re really enjoying it week in week out. Hopefully we showed to the fans that we can get out of the situation we are in and we will get out of it.

“I think he has his own ideas and the lads are responding to it. We’re working on it everyday in training - they’re long sessions but we’re thriving off it and it’s just nice to have someone fresh.

“We’ve had a few managers this season and we wasn’t sure what was happening with Whits and stuff like that but we’re settled now, we know what’s happening and we just want to crack on, get another game under our belt and get another win and just push up the league.”

With the festive season upon us, the busy footballing schedule begins on Saturday with the visit of Neil Aspin’s Port Vale.

And Macclesfield’s Number ten admitted confidence is key heading into such a crucial fixture. 

“We’ll work as hard as we can like we have done. It’s just another game, but the next one for us is always the biggest one of the season. Obviously with it being local I am sure they will bring a few but we’ll have great support behind us.

“It’s bound to be a good game, we’ve got to be confident going into it and hopefully we can come out with another win.”
