Hodgkiss On Ebbsfleet

Macclesfield Town
Posted:Sat 07 Oct 2017

Jared Hodgkiss says the squad will need to guard against complacency as they prepare to host Ebbsfleet United on Saturday.

The summer signing from Kidderminster was forced to miss the opening 11 games of the new season – after picking up an injury towards the end of pre-season.

However, he would, eventually, make his long-awaited debut for the Silkmen in the 1-0 win against Torquay on September 23rd. Macclesfield have won all three of their games since.

The 2-1 win over Guiseley on Tuesday night put John Askey’s side at the top of the National League table one point ahead of previous leaders, Dover Athletic. Hodgkiss believes the squad can take real confidence from their early season league position but admits that they can’t afford to get carried away.

“We’ve got a great chance to build a run,” he told Silkmen TV. "So hopefully we can keep it going against Ebbsfleet.

“If we’re not going into the game with confidence, now, when we’re top of the league, then we’re never going to be. It should be a good game and if we put our plans together I’m confident we’ll get three points.

“Teams are going to look at us and think that we’re doing pretty well, but at the end of the day, it’s only October. There’s a big difference between being top now and in April. We’ve got to take confidence from it but we’ve got to make sure we keep our feet on the ground as well."
