Elliott Hoping To Keep Run Going

Elliott Durrell admits the Macclesfield Town players will be aiming to maintain their place in the play-off places as the season begins to take shape.

A dramatic victory over AFC Fylde lifted The Silkmen into the top seven and they will go into this weekend’s game against Maidstone on the back of four wins in five.

It has been some run of form for John Askey’s side who have also racked up three clean sheets in the same period.

Durrell, whose smart individual play created the first of Scott Wilson’s brace in the 2-1 victory on Tuesday, believes that preserving a play-off place is a strong possibility in the coming weeks.

“Nothing is won or lost in September,” the winger said, “but for as long as were in and around that area – we’ve always got a chance.

“I think we’ve realised that the opportunity we’ve got here. Certainly, with the group of players, we have in the dressing room.

“You put a couple of wins together and you can go on a run,  you can be right up there and that’s something we have to make sure we do in the games to come.”

The former Chester man, who only joined Macclesfield in the summer, went onto say that the team spirit in the dressing room is getting better all the time.

“We’re learning more about each other all the time. Game by game it’s getting better.

“I think we have to be a bit more ruthless, but, I’m going to put my neck on the line and say that there’s a game coming where we’re going to score a lot of goals.

“We’ve just got to keep working hard - but I’m sure that’s just around the corner.”
