Macclesfield Town Head Coach Daryl McMahon stated that his side are looking forward to getting out in front of the home fans once more as they host a Crawley Town side who have also made a bright start to the campaign
“We’re looking forward to it, glad to be back at home again” stated McMahon.
“Crawley have had a decent start to the season as well, so I expect it to be a difficult game but one we’re looking forward to.
“They’re a very good side. They’ve got real pace and power along their front line, some good experience in their team as well, Dannie Bullman has had a fantastic career in the middle of the pitch for them and they’ve had a good start to the season as I’ve said.”
The gaffer admits that it is important that his side can continue nicking points from these early fixtures.
“Momentum is very important you know but winning and losing are habits I think, and we’ve got a habit of nicking goals, getting points, winning games and we’ve got to keep it going if we can.”
Despite currently sitting in a comfortable 7th place in the Sky Bet League Two table, McMahon insists that there is still work to do.
“There is loads to improve on” admitted the boss.
“I think we’ve highlighted that to the boys yesterday with some videos of stuff we haven’t done so well. Even though we are playing well and winning games, there are still things I think we can massively, massively improve on; it’s good to try and improve on them whilst we’re playing well, whilst we’re winning games we were looking at that as well, there’s a long way to go.”
During the week, a statistic was released that Macclesfield Town have given the most minutes to players under the age of 23 in the whole of English football so far this campaign, and McMahon agrees is something the club can be proud of.
“It’s an incredible stat really, especially when you consider Bolton have been playing their youth team for the season so far.
"We’re very young, like I said to you we’ve got loads to improve on, loads to get better at but there’s loads of growth in this team as well, they’re hungry and they want to learn and I think we can really evolve as the season goes on.
"We’ve got lots of talent and that has to be harnessed and it has to learn and improve across the season” said the gaffer.
“I think with the fans they’re going to see an honest group every Saturday, every Tuesday they’re going to give their all for the Football Club, they want to improve, they want to win, they want to do well and there’s a real honesty in this group, we’ve got to keep that going for the rest of the season”
