Torquay United boss, Gary Owers, is expecting to come against a wounded animal when his side visits Moss Rose tomorrow.
The manager who has been in charge at Plainmoor since September, admits The Silkmen’s defeat against AFC Fylde last weekend may provide just the motivation Macclesfield need to get back to winning ways.
Sitting top of the league, Macclesfield could extend their own advantage to six points. Torquay, on the other hand, will go into the game sitting bottom.
Speaking of his side's opponents, Owers told torquayunited.com that was expecting a strong performance from John Askey’s men.
He said: “We’re not in a position where we can relax too much about them, even with their defeat last weekend.
“They’ll be a wounded animal and looking at us as the best game they could have had after that result.
“We’ll be going up there and no-one will give us a chance against them and we’ll have to be at our best to string a surprise.”
