Sturrock: 'We are now playing well and got the breaks'
The Shrimpers' last home victory was a 1-0 success against Rotherham on October 30th, but their impressive recent away form and some solid performances at home had given Sturrock hope, and a brace from Bilel Mohsni and further goals from Ryan Hall and Craig Easton secured the comfortable win.
Sturrock said after the game: "Someone was eventually going to get a hiding at Roots Hall. To be fair, Macclesfield came out and won the second half and we knew it was going to be a difficult game because of the result and our performances against them already this season.
However, Luggy was happy enough with the points after all this time, especially as his managerial skills have been shown to be spot on this time around!
Sturrock concluded: "Our confidence had been eroded at home but we have changed the system and I think that has helped because we have simplified the game and everyone knows what they have to do. It's taken a long time to get there but we are now playing well and got the breaks, whereas it had seemed like everything was going against us."
