Caught On Camera: May

12 June 2019

With Sol Campbell's men effectively only needing a point to safeguard our EFL status, we took on Cambridge United in last season's finale with our sights firmly set on completing an epic escape.

A packed Moss Rose witnessed history being made - yet it wasn't without a rollercoaster of emotions, which in many ways acted as a stark reminder of what we had all endured over the preceding nine months.

The tension was tangible as the two sides entered the pitch and yet, this was qualified with a sense of belief that the job would ultimately be done.

Our resolve would be tested to the maximum that afternoon and this was certainly the case after former Silkman Paul Lewis gave the visitors a 44th minute lead.

This was compounded shortly after the interval, when news broke that Notts County had taken the lead at Swindon and Macc descended into the dreaded relegation zone.

The character of everyone involved within the club began to shine through - as everybody   fought with every ounce of their being to secure the status which means so much to us.

This undoubtedly spurred the team on and on 66 minutes our reward finally came, as Brice Ntambwe's visionary through-ball was latched on to by Elliott Durrell and he majestically fired home the equalising goal.

With Swindon also restoring parity down in Wiltshire, the dynamics of the contest at the Moss Rose shifted from that of nervous tension to jubilant celebration.

Tyrone Marsh could have won it for the hosts late on, yet survival was all that mattered and we secured that with consummate professionalism in the closing exchanges of a pulsating finale.
