Danny On Lincoln Visit: "We Will Be More Than Ready"

11 September 2018

Macclesfield Town Midfielder and Joint Assistant Manager Danny Whitaker admitted his disappointment after seeing his side defeated at Stevenage on Saturday, but claimed that results would improve soon. 

Macc made the long journey back from Hertfordshire after Danny Newton’s strike just before the interval proved to be enough to claim maximum points.  

Despite the defeat, Danny was optimistic that the team will bounce back. 

It was very difficult” said the thirty-seven year old. 

“Obviously, with the goal we let ourselves down massively - we can’t concede goals like that. 

“We worked on it a lot in training and it’s a massive disappointment to concede like that just before half-time when we were well in the game. 

“We made a few chances for ourselves, but again we’ve came away with no points.” 

Despite creating numerous opportunities to restore parity, it was not to be for the EFL newcomers. 

“We’ve got to be a little concerned really because that’s the aim of the game, to score goals” Danny stated. 

“We’ve got to start scoring, and keep clean sheets on the back of that, it’s a bit of both really.  

“All we can do is keep working hard, take it into the next game and learn from it.” 

Whitaker was also keen to praise the travelling support that made the trip to the Lamex Stadium and wanted to reassure the fans that things will eventually get better. 

“You lose a game and fans are going to be disappointed. 

“They’ve travelled a long way to see us play and we thank them for their support; they’ve been incredible in all the away games we’ve played and hopefully they’ll stick with us so that we can turn it around.” 

The Silkmen entertain league leaders Lincoln City on Saturday and Macc’s midfield maestro believes the team are more than prepared for the challenge that lies ahead. 

“Every game is difficult in this league, there’s no easy games whether that be home or away.  

“We’ll be more than ready for it, we know what to expect and we’ll put a shift in - we’ll work our socks off. 

“Hopefully we will have a bit of luck in front of goal and who knows what can happen.”. 

“You have ups and downs in football and at the minute everything is going against us, so you just have to keep your head down, work hard and hopefully things will change.”
