Macca Hopes To Stay

ALEX MacDonald plays the last game of his loan spell for the Pilgrims on Tuesday night, but the forward hopes it will not be the last time he puts on the green and white shirt.

The on-loan Burnley forward, who has made 16 appearances so far this term,  has expressed his desire to return to Home Park and states that it is up to both clubs to make it happen.

“I’ve always said since I’ve been down here that I enjoyed it,” said Macca.

“I like the place and it’s a great club.

“[The move] is something I’m open to and something me and the manager have spoken about on numerous occasions but now it’s up to both clubs to sort something out.”

Having netted against Southend fairly early on in the season, goal-scoring opportunities have been hard to come by for Macca in recent weeks.

And whilst lady luck can be held partially responsible, the 23-year-old is also happy to put his hands up for the lack of goals.

“We have missed a few chances, myself included, and it’s the small margins that are costing us in these games.

“I don’t want to bring it down to lady luck but if you look back at some of the games, some decisions haven’t gone our way but we can’t solely blame that on where we are in the table.

“But it’s not like were playing badly or that were struggling to compete with teams in this league.”
