Macclesfield Town assistant manager Steve Watson is hoping that the Silkmen will make it three wins in a row on Saturday at the Moss Rose against Dagenham and Redbridge.

Macc have picked up back to back away wins in the past week after scoring four away at Boreham Wood and winning by the one goal against Southport.

As well as hoping for a third win in a row, Watson admits that tomorrow is a big game.

Speaking to, he said: “We’ve had a good four days, two wins in a row and six goals away from home but we need to turn it into three games in a row on Saturday.

“It’s as big a game as we’ve had this season – even bigger than the second leg at Tranmere because a win will keep our play-off hopes alive and ultimately that’s where we want to be at the end of the season. In many ways we have seven cup finals before the cup final!”

John Askey’s men picked up a point when they made the trip to Victoria Road earlier in the season, with Chris Holroyd scoring a 90th-minute equaliser.

Watson believes that tomorrow’s clash is a must win game and with Daggers top goal scorer Oliver Hawkins out injured he’s confident that Macc can get three points.

He added: “We are confident; it’s a must win game the lads know that. We’ve got seven cup finals before the FA Trophy final, it’s one game at a time but tomorrow is huge.

“They’re a good side they’ve been up there all season. But they lost one of their best players (Hawkins) through injury on Monday.”
