Rea­sons to be cheer­ful

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORS -

MACC’S victory over Welling made their manager a happy man – and John Askey ad­mits his own ex­cite­ment lev­els are on the rise.

The come-from-be­hind win kept Macc in third, and per­haps more im­por­tantly es­tab­lished an 11-point gap to Wok­ing in sixth.

“I’d have been re­ally dis­ap­pointed if we hadn’t taken the three points,” said Askey. “We needed the three points or we would have been very dis­ap­pointed, more with the per­for­mance than drop­ping two points.

“But we go home and every­body’s happy and we’ll move on to the next game, it’s start­ing to get ex­cit­ing isn’t it? “Even I’m get­ting ex­cited. A bit.”

Amid that ex­cite­ment Askey was full of praise for his dou­ble-bar­relled hit­man, Matthew Barnes-Homer, who net­ted twice in his first start since the de­feat at Bris­tol Rovers on De­cem­ber 28.

‘Bar­nesy’ showed his eye for goal to leave Chris Bush floun­der­ing in hit­ting the Silk­men’s sec­ond equaliser.

He then found the space to nod in a pull­back from Adri­ano Moke (right) for the win­ner.

“Bar­nesy is a very strong player, on an­other day he could have had four or five goals ,” added Askey. “But I’m sure the two will give him loads of con­fi­dence go­ing into the next game, which I think he needed.”
