Si­lenc­ing the Blues’ boos

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORS -

JOHN Askey has put the call out for sup­port­ers to stick with his young team, and recog­nise how well they’ve per­formed in the sea­son’s early stages.

While he was marginally dis­ap­pointred by only get­ting a point from Satur­day’s home game with Kid­der­min­ster, one of the di­vi­sion’s more-fan­cied teams, he was left scratch­ing his head by a mi­nor­ity of sup­port­ers jeer­ing the Silk­men.

Askey ad­mits that it was Macc’s fourth un­beaten game and that per­cep­tions and ex­pec­ta­tions change with such runs, but he’s call­ing on those at the Moss Rose to do their bit and ‘back Macc’.

“Peo­ple have got to re­alise that when they’re crit­i­cis­ing us for not get­ting the ball down and play­ing,” he said.

“Do they re­alise what we’re up against? We’re get­ting play­ers who we can’t pay money to and God knows what some of the play­ers we’re up against are on.

“You pay your money and you can come and shout and do what you want.

“I can’t com­plain if they turn up, they’re pay­ing my wages, but I think they just need to re­alise that if they can get be­hind them a lit­tle bit more it makes a big dif­fer­ence. We’ve all got to stick to­gether.”
