Fiacre: "It Was A Good Point"

8 October 2019

Macclesfield Town skipper Fiacre Kelleher said that his side got “a good point,” after drawing 2-2, away to Cambridge United.

“I think it was a good point. It’s a difficult place to come as they’re riding high at the moment. We battled really well for the whole game” he said.

“But, sloppy goals again came from one or two individual errors. All in all, I thought we did well and battled for 95 minutes so I’m pleased.

"We’re getting chances and I’m hoping that one of these days, they’re all going to go in, for a big win.”

The hosts took the lead in the 13th minute and lead by a goal at the interval, courtesy of a long-distance strike from Jack Roles.

It stayed this way until the 65th minute of the match, when two quick goals swung the match in favour of the visitors.

First, Theo Archibald levelled the game with a deflected effort, before Arthur Gnahoua found the top corner to give Macc the advantage.

“I had a go at Theo a bit because I saw it take a deflection. But it was a good strike to be fair to him” said Kelleher.

“Arthur’s finishing is very good. I’m pleased for him because he’s done really well in the last few games. He’s a great lad.”

The home outfit equalised twelve minutes before time, when a defensive mix-up allowed forward Sam Smith to head in from close-range.

“It’s me, Owen (Evans) and the defence” said the club captain. “At the moment, I’m not too sure but we’ll look at it and make sure it doesn’t happen again.”

Towards the end of the game, Theo Vassell nearly gave Macclesfield the victory, but fired his shot over the bar.

“I think he should score but he did really well to get into that position. He just needed to keep his eye on it and keep it down, I suppose.”

Up next for the Silkmen comes the visit of Port Vale and Kelleher is very much looking forward to the clash.

“I can’t wait. In the last two games we’ve put in some good performances for 90 minutes, so hopefully we can add that clinical edge and get the win.”
