Saturday’s game with Solihull Moors provided a difficult test for Macclesfield Town, but the Silkmen came out with a point from a tricky fixture.
The game was even tougher for the Silkmen after losing Kieran Kennedy and Jared Hodgkiss to injury, but the eventual 0-0 draw leaves Macclesfield four points clear at the top of the National League.
SilkmenTV spoke to goalkeeper Sam Ramsbottom – in the starting XI after the suspension of Shwan Jalal – about the game, and the positives the Silkmen can take from it.
“It is a clean sheet which obviously is important, we were unfortunate because we think we could have taken something from the game and we have had chances to win the game, but most importantly we didn’t concede. We can build on that for Tuesday night against Halifax which is another big game, in the FA Trophy which we want to do as well as we possibly can in.
“It is a point and it keeps us moving forward which is what we want. We are unbeaten which is important, we have gone on a run of six or seven unbeaten where we are progressing and still moving forward.”
Despite sitting in the relegation zone in the National League, Moors came into the game in good form, and provided a tough test for the Silkmen, as Ramsbottom alluded to after the game;
“We have picked up a point, they were difficult to breakdown especially in the second half, but we have had chances. At least it is something to build on and another point on our total.”
