Ollie Norburn was pleased to return to first team action on Saturday against Guiseley, even though the match result went against his Macclesfield Town side.
The midfielder has been out since October with a knee injury, with the 2-1 loss being his first game back in the National League.
Speaking to Silkmen Player HD, Norburn admits that, while he was disappointed with the result, he was more than happy to be back in action for the Silkmen.
“It was a bad result on Saturday, one of them where from a team performance we’ve come away very disappointed, but for me personally it was good to get back out there.
“That was my second game in 14 weeks, and I played the week before at Sudbury so it was nice to get back on the pitch. It’s good to be back, I just want to hit the ground running now with some good personal performances and good team performances.
“It’s been frustrating watching from the sidelines, but I’ve worked hard to be ready for when I came back. I feel good and hopefully we can have a strong end to the season”.
The defeat on Saturday saw Macclesfield drop down to 10th in the National League table, but are just six points shy of the playoff places, and Norburn is confident the team can push on.
“We were doing well before my injury, and we’re still in a good position now from a team point of view. We just need a strong finish”.
