Askey’s for­ward think­ing

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT -

JOHN Askey’s bid to boost his at­tack­ing op­tions may have been un­suc­cess­ful but the Macc man­ager still has irons in the fire.

Askey was told he can bol­ster his squad shortly be­fore the de­feat at Lin­coln but hadn’t se­cured a tar­get man as the Ex­press went to press.

“I’ve made a lot of en­quiries and we’ve been watch­ing a few play­ers but we can’t af­ford to rush into any­thing,” said Askey ahead of Tues­day’s Al­trin­cham derby. “We won’t bring some­one in just for the sake of hav­ing an ex­tra body, we have to get the right per­son. I’ve got one for­ward that wants to come but his club won’t al­low it be­cause they’re wor­ried about sus­pen­sions.

“We’re still look­ing at one lad from the Premier League, one from the First Di­vi­sion and one from our league, so we’ll see.”

Mean­while right-back Andy Halls (right) has been brought into the Eng­land C squad to take on Turkey on Oc­to­ber 14.

“He de­serves his call-up, he’s been ter­rific,” added Askey. “Some doubted him be­fore the sea­son started but he’s ex­pe­ri­enced and younger than peo­ple think.”
