On Saturday, the Silkmen once again showed that the game is not over until it’s over.
Macclesfield’s never say die attitude shone through at Victoria Park, as John Askey’s men came back from 1 goal behind, to win 2-1 curtesy of two goals in the last five minutes from Ryan Lloyd and Keith Lowe respectively.
Lowe was quickest to the ball in added time to nod past ex-England goalkeeper Scott Loach and the defender, an ever present in the team this season, said that it was a relief to finally be off the mark for Macc.
“I was a bit relieved just to get a goal to be honest,” Said Lowe.
“And then for it to be the winner is even better so it’s a credit to the lads for fighting back and we’ve now got to move on from here.
“Hartlepool’s a tough place to go and we’re more than happy going there and getting three points and like I said before we always go into games expecting to win so nothing changed there and fortunately on Saturday we came out with three points.
“The clean-sheets are pleasing, for me as a defender the clean-sheets are as good as a goal and I’ve got to keep working hard at that and hopefully there’s more to come.”
Defender Lowe also spoke about pressing on with the SIlkmen’s run of good form. John Askey’s men have now put an unbeaten run of 5 games together, and after crossing the half-way point of the season on Saturday, points are increasingly becoming more valuable.
“It’s important to keep putting wins and good runs together so with another three points on the board we can kick on now.
“The seasons gone really well, I don’t think we could’ve asked for too much more and the lads are all putting work in together and working for each other and we’re getting the results.”
