Elliot Durrell is hoping his Macclesfield Town side take advantage of a potential lack of confidence in the opposition dressing room when they travel to Forest Green on Saturday.
Speaking after last weekend’s game against Eastleigh, the last league fixture for two weeks, Durrell admitted that the players are confident of going there and causing an upset.
Last season’s National League playoff winners, Forest Green, have begun slowly in their first season in the Football League. Sitting one point above the drop zone, Mark Cooper's side have picked up 15 points from their last 16 league games. That has, however, included winning their last three in a row.
Durrell says that the team has to benefit from a possible lack of belief in the opposition.
“You know what to expect when you play Forest Green. They’re a good footballing side and they were when they were in this league, so, it’ll be a tough task to go down there and play them.
“They are, however, down the bottom of their league and they might be struggling for confidence slightly; we’re the opposite. We’re buzzing for every game and I think we’ve got to keep playing that way and take advantage of the chance we might get on Saturday.
“It’s about going into every game thinking you can win it and the Forest Green game won’t any different. It’s a contest we’ll definitely be looking to win."
