Gary Simpson is happy to keep turning to non-league football in order to unearth rough diamonds for Macclesfield.
Forwards Michael Bakare and Ben Mills have recently made the step up to the Football League after joining the Silkmen from Chelmsford City and Nantwich Town respectively.
Simpson insists there is no pressure on the duo as he seeks to address an ongoing injury crisis within financial constraints.
"It's something that we've done in the past - we can't afford the ready-made article, our budget doesn't stretch to that," Simpson said.
"We have to go out, get them in, make them better and polish them up. If we can do that with these two then we've done another good job for the club.
"It's a bit of a tough call for us to rely on these two lads who have been two or three divisions below where we are. They've come into a team that's been decimated with injuries - it's not the ideal situation to be in and we're not putting any pressure on them whatsoever."
