Macclesfield forward Tyrone Marsh says it was “great to help the boys out” following his last-minute equaliser to earn a point against Tranmere.
With the Silkmen trailing at 2-1 and ten minutes left on the clock, Marsh was introduced onto the field by manager John Askey to play alongside Scott Wilson in a bid to get something from the game.
It was a shrewd move by the Macc boss, who watched Marsh slot home from close range in the dying seconds following a set piece.
Speaking after the game, Marsh said: “It was a very tough game. They’re a very good side and they shouldn’t really be where they are in the league. They’ve come here and done a good job, but we could’ve won it at the end so we’ve done very well.
“When you’re on the bench, all you want to do is come on and score. It’s the least you want to do – I’m just happy I can help the boys out.”
Marsh has played many of his minutes this season from the bench – and has praised fellow forward Scott Wilson’s quality for that fact – but now says he is hoping to push on to being a starter.
“Scotty’s done very well to be fair,” he said. “He’s come in, won player of the month, took his opportunities well."
