Smooth first vic­tory leaves Askey pleased

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH -

Con­tin­ued from back we were a lit­tle bit too deep on the kick but the game was over by then any­way.

“It is dis­ap­point­ing that we con­ceded a goal and I know the de­fend­ers are dis­ap­pointed in the man­ner they con­ceded be­cause we lim­ited them to prob­a­bly just one chance prior to that.

“We needed a win and we needed goals, so hope­fully this gives the play­ers a con­fi­dence boost.”

Askey has made no se­cret about the fact Mac­cles­field have a lim­ited squad this sea­son, with only a small group of play­ers at his dis­posal.

It means any in­juries to the squad could be detri­men­tal, but the Silk­men man­ager was glad to have ev­ery­body come through against Welling un­scathed.

“That was re­ally pleas­ing be­cause not only was the per­for­mance against Welling good but we look like we have sur­vived the game with­out pick­ing up any in­juries,” he said.

“It is early days in the sea­son. It was a big bonus to have Jack and Paul com­ing back to fit­ness. We need it be­cause ev­ery­body will play a part this sea­son.”

As the Ex­press went to print, Mac­cles­field were set to take on Lin­coln City at Sin­cil Bank in their latest Na­tional League match.

Next up for the Silk­men this week­end is a trip to Ten Acres to face Eastleigh. Askey’s side suf­fered a hu­mil­i­at­ing 4-0 de­feat in this fix­ture when the two teams met last sea­son.
