Smooth first victory leaves Askey pleased
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.
