Macclesfield Town midfielder Paul Lewis was pleased with the Silkmen’s 3-0 victory over visiting team Wrexham on Tuesday night.
Macclesfield went into the game knowing that a win could take them as high as third in the National League, should results around the grounds cooperate.
And a win was what they got, with the Silkmen running out with all three points after a Danny Whitaker brace – with a goal coming either side of half-time – and a rare goal from Paul Lewis to sink Wrexham.
Speaking after the game, Lewis told mtfc.co.uk: “It was a good performance. We needed that after losing the last home game 1-0, so it’s good to get the points on the board.”
It’s been some time since Lewis last bagged for the Silkmen, and he was jubilant to have added to the scoresheet against the Welsh side.
He said: “I haven’t scored one in a while, so I thought it was nice to get one. Obviously it’s been put on a plate for me but it’s nice to score it.”
The win took Macclesfield to the heights of third, the kind of area where all involved with the Silkmen would love to see the club fighting in come the end of the season. Lewis, however, knows the hard work is still to come.
“It’s still early doors but obviously it’s great to be up there now, and it gives all the boys confidence and hopefully we’ll be up there come the end of the season.” He said.
With the game in hand successfully put to bed, and Macc sitting comfortably in third, Lewis says the focus is now on the game at hand – North Ferriby.
“Hopefully another three points, hopefully we can keep the form going and see where it takes us.” He said.
