Macclesfield Town captain Andy Halls is not expecting to go straight into the starting 11 after serving his three game ban.
The 24-year-old was sent off away at Sutton United last month and has been forced to watch the Silkmen pick up two wins from their last three games from the stand.
However, despite being captain and starting every game prior to his sending off, Halls doesn’t expect to go back into the team because of the good form Macc have shown.
Speaking to MTFC.co.uk, Halls said: “It’s been frustrating not playing as captain and a player who wants to play every game.
“But the lads have done brilliantly over the last three games that I haven’t been involved in, I’m not expecting to go straight back into the team but I’m going to do my best to get back.”
Halls’ first game back could well be away at Bromley on Saturday who have picked up eight points from their opening eight games.
The Macc skipper admits that it will be a tough test on Saturday but is hoping that the Silkmen do things in the right way to get the points:
“I think Saturday is going to be tough test for us again going away to Bromley I think we need to do things in the right manner and work really hard to get all three points.
“And then after that we have two tough home games and we have such a good home record we can go on a build on that,” explained Halls.
