The striker is on a season-long loan at Parma from Middlesbrough and he kick-started his campaign in the Uefa Cup on Thursday.
Maccarone is looking to take confidence from his efforts against Maribor and is happy to play in tandem with Alberto Gilardino.
"I am happy to have come back and scored," said the striker. "It went better in comparison to Sunday. Next time I hope to find my condition quickly."
Parma coach Silvio Baldini asked Maccarone to play in behind Gilardino and the forward is happy to oblige.
"It's a role I have played before," he added. "And I don't have a problem finding the habit again."
