'We laid the ghost of Tranmere'
*Liam McDonald now switches focus to visit of Eastleigh - by John Clothier*
"It is the best feeling in the world! That is how I would describe the 3 1 win at Macclesfield.

You do not become a poor team overnight but spells of lacking confidence hit all clubs at some stage during a season and ours came at a bad time. I knew we would get it back and I told the players to have a couple of days relaxing after the narrow defeat against York, where at least we laid the ghost of Tranmere and for most of the second half we dominated.

Our substitutions with Omari, Ashley and Dapo worked to perfection and all three thoroughly justified their place in the starting line up against Macclesfield.

I had every confidence that we would build on the York performance and win at Macclesfield. I asked the players to take a minute out before the match and think about the last time individually that they did something special on the pitch scored a goal, blocked a vital move etc. I then suggested they bottle that feeling and take it out onto the pitch at Moss Rose.

I think it worked but I was so pleased to see all the lads race straight over to our fans after every goal. That is what it means to them. We live for football but we need that 12th man!

That win was a big thank you to everyone who has supported the players and myself through a difficult time. 

Again I cannot praise our bench players too highly on Monday just as the Silkmen were tiring they had to face Andy, Regan and Nortei and the goals were testament to what they did to our performance. I was so proud of all the players over the Bank Holiday. They have been 100% behind me on this steep learning curve. It has not been easy but we are all better for the experience.

I have said before that the difference it makes to us when we know the crowd is willing us on can increase performance by perhaps 15%. It goes a long way to reducing the gap between us and full time squads. So please lets hear you just as loud on Saturday when Eastleigh visit the ATG Stadium.

We start our Eastleigh preparations now. We have had them watched and I will be studying videos of their last three away matches so that we can get the set up and tactics right on Saturday and hopefully seal our place in the National League for another season."
