Summer signing Scott Wilson described opening his account for the club as a brilliant feeling after scoring in the game against Sutton on Tuesday night.
The forward marked his first start with a long-range thunderbolt just two minutes into the game at Gander Green Lane.
The former Eastleigh man continued to cause the Sutton backline all sorts of problems before eventually being replaced by Tyrone Marsh midway through the second half.
Speaking to Silkmen TV ahead of this weekend’s game against Gateshead, Wilson admitted it was a fantastic moment to get off the mark for the club.
He said: “It’s great to get off the mark, it really is a brilliant feeling, but now I just want to keep it going and keep everyone else going. It’s always good to open your account, particularly this early in the season.
“Obviously, for the first three games I have been out of the team, but I’m pleased that I’ve taken my opportunity in the manner that I have and I just want to try and get a run together now to help the team as much as I can.
The last time Macclesfield met the Tynesiders at the Gateshead International Stadium; it finished in a 1-0 draw and Wilson is confident they can put on a good show away from home.
“It’s going to be a tough game because it’s never an easy game going up to Gateshead, but I think It will suit us a bit better than the game against Sutton did.
“We want to, especially away from home, just put in a solid performance and we’ve got the players to score against anybody. We’re hoping that will go in our favour on Saturday.
“The squad are gelling and each day it is getting better. It’s certainly looking good going forward.”
