Elliott: "We Got What We Deserved"

26 November 2018

Elliott Durrell called for Macclesfield Town to build some momentum, following their victory against Yeovil Town at the weekend.

The winger starred once again in Macc blue on Saturday afternoon, helping his teammates to record their second consecutive win at Moss Rose and their first clean sheet of the season. 

The Silkmen travel to Exeter City tomorrow - the first of three long away trips in all competitions and Durrell expressed the importance to carry confidence with them. 

Looking back to last year, that’s what we did so well,” Durrell explained to Silkmen TV. “We won a few consecutive games on the bounce, and if you can do that football changes quickly so that’s what we’ll be looking to do starting Tuesday. 

“It’s no hidden secret that we have not hit the heights we aimed for this season, but it’s still relatively early days and to get a win like we have can only spur us on to greater things. 

“Saturday was a crucial game, for more reasons than one. It was important that we won at home.” 

It was Michael Rose who scored the winner, stepping up to net his third penalty of the season after Durrell was sent tumbling in the area - with the 29-year-old admitted fancied the spot-kick himself. 

“I would like to have taken it,” smiled Durrell, “But listen, Rosey has scored every penalty he’s taken this season.” 

“It’s not about who scores as long as it finds the back of the net, that’s the most important thing. Thankfully he’s done that, and we’ve got three points. 

“The fans turned out for us again, and we’ve put in a good performance and got out of the game what we deserved.” 

Durrell has comfortably slotted back into the Macc side as if he had never spent the last seven months side-lined and the influential winger stated that he is still yet to hit the form of last year. 

“It will probably take a couple more games to get back to where I was, when I was probably at the peak of my performance last season,” said Durrell. “The 90 minutes on Saturday will certainly help. 

“Obviously I’ve got to take it a day at a time and make sure I don’t have any repercussions, but I felt good out there and hopefully I played well too.”
