"We Were Delighted To Get Three Points"

20 August 2019

After his side’s 2 - 1 victory over Northampton Town, Macclesfield forward Ben Stephens said that he and his side were “delighted to get the three points".

"I thought we played well. It was a good game. They had a few chances at the end and we rode our luck a little bit, but other than that I think we were the better team".

"We enjoyed lots of possession and had a few chances ourselves to add to the score-line even more.”

Stephens opened the scoring in the 39th minute with his first goal of the season to give his team the advantage going into the break.

“I had a few family members here today, so I’m delighted to get my first goal. I had a few chances in the past two games that didn’t go my way.

"I hit the post and was denied by some good saves, so now I’ve just got to go again.”

Northampton equalised in the 72nd minute through Jordan Turnbull before Theo Archibald grabbed a last-gasp winner to give the Silkmen the win.

After the game, Ben paid tribute to Interim Manager Danny Whitaker -

“He’s a good bloke, he’s ‘Mr Silkmen’ and everyone loves him. We worked hard for him today by getting across that line and we’re glad we’ve all done it.

"The fans were brilliant. They all stayed and clapped us off the pitch and hopefully on Tuesday night, we can go again in front of our home crowd and push on.

Stephens believes Macclesfield’s displays so far this season will help them going into Tuesday’s game against Morecambe at home.

“We’ve played well and not really had a bad game so we can take lots of confidence from that and push on from there.”
