Daryl: 'Our Fans Were Excellent'

25 November 2019

For the second week in a row, the Silkmen managed to secure a goalless draw Sky Bet League Two as we claimed a share of the spoils at Salford City.

After the game we caught up with Head Coach Daryl McMahon to gain his thoughts - 

“I am really proud again as it was a good performance, I thought we defended really well against a team who have been playing well the past couple of weeks.

“It was a tight game and I thought our fans today were excellent, it showed on our players and we had a real aggression in our play. I thought it was a good game.”

“I thought we lacked a little bit of quality in the final third and our decision making could’ve been better, but we stuck to the general game plan and played well.”

Macclesfield could’ve got on the scoresheet, but midfielder Jak McCourt was unlucky to see his effort saved by the Salford keeper mid-way through the second period -

Daryl said: “It was a good shot from Jak and I thought the keeper did well to be fair. I thought we grew into the game and we did well even though we’re missing players such as Theo Archibald due to injury. I thought we did really well today.”

Daryl introduced fan favourite Emmanuel Osadebe from the bench during the second half, and Daryl was pleased with the shift that he put in -

“Paddy was superb when he came on, he gives you that pace and energy. He’s not trained since his injury against Shrewsbury so we’re looking to give minutes back playing. He was really positive for us when he came on.”

“When we play at home it doesn’t matter who we play, our performances have been really good and were a tough place to come to.”

“Any point away from home is important, were playing away from home against a side who have some really good players, so I’m proud of the performance again today.”
