Macclesfield Town Assistant manager Steve Watson was satisfied to maintain the Silkmen’s current unbeaten run in the Vanarama National League, following Saturday’s trip to Torquay.

The game finished 1-1 at Plainmoor, with the hosts striking back in the second half following Kingsley James’ opener ten minutes from half time.

Speaking to Silkmen Player HD, he said: “I suppose away from home with a long trip like that, a point isn’t the end of the world, but when we’re trying to push on and look for a spot in the playoffs then you start nit picking a little bit.

“I think we created five or six chances where we could have done better at the end of it, but at the end of the day it could have been a lot worse so a point away from home keeps the unbeaten run going”.

The result from the weekend leaves the Silkmen six points away from fifth placed Dover, and more importantly a spot in the playoff places.

With two home games in quick succession this week, Watson knows how vital the upcoming fixtures can be for Macclesfield.

“We need to win the home games, we know that. To get to where we need to be then six points at home this week is what we’ve definitely got to be looking at”.
