THE season reaches its climax when Macclesfield Town visit the Launa Windows Stadium tomorrow – kick-off 5.15pm.

Torquay United will be aiming to finish the campaign with four consecutive wins after the victories over Altrincham, Lincoln and Halifax, but our visitors are under massive pressure to earn all three points.

The Silkmen must win and hope that either Forest Green or Eastleigh slip up in their fixtures to have any chance of reaching the play-offs, adding extra spice to the occasion.

“We want to win games and keep setting standards, keep getting better,” said manager Chris Hargreaves. “Training has been as fierce as it’s been all season and we’re definitely not in holiday mode.

“It’s very important to finish the season on a relative high. I haven’t achieved what I wanted this season but we’ve still had good value from a lot of players, and they’ve kept fighting right to the end.

“It’s a very difficult time for players up and down the country, but every player pulling on a shirt is a professional who wants to show pride for the club and for himself. As soon as the whistle blows, you want to play well.

“Macclesfield are fighting for points and they will hope that either Forest Green or Eastleigh will win, but we want to enjoy thanking our home fans for their support at the end of the game, and that’s a lot easier to do when you’ve won.

“We want to win four games on the spin and go into the summer happier. Not happy, but happier, and it’s good the game has an edge.”
