Posted:Mon 23 Oct 2017

Byron Jeninks says that Macclesfield Town will quickly turn their focus to another tough away day after a succesful weekend in the captial.

The Silkmen are flying in the National League and are three points clear of second place Dover after a fantastic win away at Leyton Orient on Saturday.

However, games come around thick and fast and Tuesday night see’s the Silkmen travel to face Dagenham & Redbridge at Victoria Road.

With ten wins in the last twelve games in all competitions, John Askey’s men will be wanting to extend that record.

After the win at Leyton Orient, Byron Jenkins spoke to with his thoghts ahead of the Dagenham clash.

“I enjoy winning and you’ve got to enjoy it when you’re doing well but we won’t get too carried away, but the main thing is doing it again on Tuesday night against Dagenham.

“We watched Dagenham in their game against Orient the other day and they were a very good team, and they’re going to be tough opposition like today.

“They’ve got some very good players. But our lads are good lads and on their day, they’re better than anyone as they’ve shown as we’re top of the league. We’ll have to look at them closely and try and exploit some of their weaknesses.”

“We’ve got to keep the pressure on, right up till Christmas and keep it on the other teams. If we can get on a good run now till Christmas you never know, it could help us get automatic promotion.

“There’s a long way to go yet but we’ve got a good squad of lads hopefully we can keep them fit and keep them confident and there’s a good feeling in the dressing room, if you could bottle it up you could sell it.”

Byron also shed some light about Jared Hodgkiss’ situation, as he missed the game through an injury.

“It’s his groin again, we’ll have to put it by him and see how it goes. We’ll play it by him and he may be all right for Tuesday, he may not.

“It was a precautionary measure to take him out but Kieran did really well standing in.”
