Macclesfield Town midfielder Ollie Norburn says the squad are preparing for Saturday’s home game with Woking “just like any other”.

After the dramatic win Solihull on Monday, in which Norburn scored the last minute Macclesfield Town FCwinner, the 23 year-old is hoping for another three points this weekend but in a slightly more conventional manner.

Speaking to ahead of Saturday’s match, Norburn said: “We’re approaching the game just like any other. It doesn’t matter where people are in the table, as you can see in this league anyone can beat anyone. As long as we’re on our game there’s not many teams that can beat us.”

A win against Woking could see the Silkmen rise to third in the table, with a bit of luck in terms of results elsewhere, and Norburn is optimistic the team can be fighting up and around there come the end of the season.

He said: “On our day there’s not many teams that can live with us, we’ve got quality players throughout the squad, even the boys who are on the bench. I don’t want to speak too soon but we believe as a group that we’ve got a set of lads who can go on and achieve something really good.”

Norburn has now been with the Silkmen for a couple of months, having joined from Guiseley in the summer. On settling with the squad, he added: “The lads have helped me settle in well. Obviously I picked up a little injury that set me back for a couple of weeks but I just want to get back on track, play regular football, and enjoy my football. Long may it continue!”
