With seven goals this season, Scott Wilson has made an impressive start to life in a Silkmen shirt.
It’s been a clinical start to his Macclesfield career for the front-man, who once again managed to get on the scoresheet on Tuesday night, following in from Danny Whitaker’s penalty to equalise against Tranmere.
Strike partner Tyrone Marsh grabbed the other goal for the Silkmen in the 2-2 draw in dramatic circumstances, scoring in the 92nd minute to keep Macclesfield’s unbeaten run going.
Wilson spoke to www.mtfc.co.uk after the match, with his thoughts on the game.
“It was a dramatic way to get a result, we were plugging away for the whole of the second half and to get the point so late on we’re happy,” Said Wilson.
“It’s frustrating that we didn’t go on to win the game as even after the goal we had some chances that were blocked, but it’s good to show that character against a strong side.”
“No matter where they are in the league, they’ll be a strong side. To show that sort of character against them and get a point is great, a point is better than none and we’ll try and build on that against Maidenhead.
“It keeps the unbeaten run going, we’ve started the season well and we want to keep going, its coming up till Christmas now and we want to keep going.”
National League October player of the month Wilson, also spoke about getting back on the scoresheet after a mini dry spell in front of goal.
“It’s good to get back on the score sheet. I needed a goal as I had gone a few games without one, so hopefully that can continue.
“It’s pleasing to see I’m getting goals. I’m confident in my ability to get goals. If I get the game time, I feel I get goals, they’re going hand in hand at the moment so hopefully that’ll continue.
“With the midfield we’ve got I’m lucky, they’ve all got great passing ability and I know I’ll get chances in the game and its up to me to take them.”
