Macclesfield Express - - SPORT - SHEL­DAN KEAY

JOHN Askey be­lieves his Mac­cles­field Town play­ers are bet­ter than any other team in the di­vi­sion when they per­form at their best.

Macc picked up their big­gest win of the sea­son when they em­phat­i­cally de­feated league lead­ers For­est Green Rovers 4-1 on Satur­day.

It was only the sec­ond time that the top of the ta­ble side have suf­fered de­feat dur­ing this cam­paign, and Askey thinks his team are ca­pa­ble of repli­cat­ing that dis­play ev­ery week.

“The play­ers need to keep be­liev­ing in them­selves and re­al­is­ing that they have just as much abil­ity as any­body in the league, if not more,” he said.

“We’ve been play­ing well all sea­son but haven’t been able to get the goals, so it was pleas­ing that man­aged to get four on Satur­day.

“The team has been do­ing some good work in train­ing and it came to fruition against the top of the league team, so I can’t ask for any more.”

Mac­cles­field had to come from be­hind in the match, and Askey praised his team for their re­siliency.

“We couldn’t have had a worse start to the match but thank­fully Kris­tian Dennis is a typ­i­cal goal scorer and he got us back in the game,”
