Watson On Fylde Test

Steve Watson says he is looking forward to what should be a good game of football when AFC Fylde visit on Tuesday night.

The Silkmen will go into the game at Moss Rose on the back of three wins in four games and sit just two points outside the play-off places.

The assistant manager was speaking shortly after the 1-0 win over Solihull on Saturday – a game that saw Scott Wilson grab the only goal of the game in the 62nd-minute.

The goal came shortly after a fine save from goalkeeper Shwan Jalal to deny Moors captain Darren Carter from the penalty spot.

Watson praised the way the goalkeeper bounced back from his own disappointment last week to make the save and told us what kind of test he is expecting from Tuesday's opponents.

“That’s the life of a goalkeeper,” Watson said, “making a mistake one week and pulling off a save like that is what it’s all about.”

“We didn’t play particularly well against Solihull, but, we got three points which is all that matters. Hopefully, we’ll take that momentum into the Fylde game.

“We’re expecting a good test from them (Fylde). We know they’ve spent a lot of money and they play a good brand of football. It should be a really good game to watch.

“We’ve had people watching them so we’re well prepared and we may have people coming back which is always a positive step.

“Hopefully, we’ll play better than we did at Solihull, but get the same result.”
