Simpson staying grounded

Macclesfield moved to the cusp of the play-off places with victory against Bradford, but boss Gary Simpson insists he will keep his feet firmly grounded. Only goal difference is keeping Town out of a coveted top seven spot after Ross Draper`s solitary goal at Valley Parade. "I am highly delighted with the result but I`m not getting carried away. Our target is 50 points. It isn't being negative to say that is our first target. We want to get that hurdle out of the way first," said Simpson, who was pleased with his side`s application. He added: "You don't need to be the best side or play the best football to win the game. As long as you are organised and work your socks off and take your chances when they come along you will be successful. "We have become a difficult team to play against. We knew it would be difficult here. They have been playing very well recently. You`ve only got to look at the players they`ve got and the massive crowd behind them. "We knew they would come at us in the second half but we also knew we would cause them problems on the break. We had a game plan and we stuck at it. They had a few chances and a lot of possession but we had the better chances to score and our winning goal was a great strike."
