Scott Wilson says he is confident the squad can bounce back this weekend as they face Eastleigh at the Moss Rose.
Macclesfield’s six game winning run came to an end in midweek at the hands of Dagenham and Redbridge, leaving the Silkmen sat in second in the National League now, tied with Dover on points but behind on goal difference.
Nonetheless, Scott has faith that the boys could return to top spot again this weekend.
Speaking ahead of the game, he said: “They’ve got a strong squad and big players in and around them so it’s going to be a tough test but we’re full of confidence so hopefully we can go and do a job on Saturday.”
Wilson is a former Eastleigh player, but he says all sense of sentiment will be out the window for 90 minutes as he looks to put in a performance that could send his current side top of the league.
“It’s always nice to play your former clubs, but I’m at Macclesfield now and I’m committed to doing a job for the team. We’re joint top of the league and we’ve got to try and create a gap again between us and the rest of the league.” He added.
