On Saturday, Macclesfield Town once again showed that the game is not over until it’s over.

That shone through at Victoria Park, as John Askey’s men came back from one goal behind to win 2-1 courtesy of two goals in the last five minutes from Ryan Lloyd and Keith Lowe respectively.

Lowe was quickest to the ball in added time to nod past ex-England goalkeeper Scott Loach, and the defender, an ever-present in the team this season, said that it was a relief to finally be off the mark for Macc.

“I was a bit relieved just to get a goal, to be honest. And then for it to be the winner is even better, so it’s a credit to the lads for fighting back and we’ve now got to move on from here.

“Hartlepool’s a tough place to go and we’re more than happy going there and getting three points. Like I said before, we always go into games expecting to win so nothing changed there, and fortunately on Saturday we came out with three points.

“The clean sheets are pleasing; for me as a defender the clean-sheets are as good as a goal and I’ve got to keep working hard at that and hopefully there’s more to come.”
