Askey de­mands re­turn to high tempo style

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT - SHELDAN KEAY

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town man­ager John Askey ad­mits that ev­ery­thing at the club seems to be go­ing wrong af­ter they suf­fered their se­cond straight de­feat on Satur­day.

The Silk­men were beaten 2-0 at home to Alder­shot af­ter goals from Al­fie Pavey and Da­mon Lathrope.

It has seen Macc lose some ground in their bat­tle for the Na­tional League play-offs, and Askey feels a pub team would be able to beat his side at the mo­ment.

“If we’re off our game then the Dog and Duck would beat us and it’s not good enough,” he said.

“It’s very dis­ap­point­ing and ev­ery­thing ap­pears to be go­ing wrong at the mo­ment so we need to sort it out.

“Ev­ery­body who watched and played in the game on Satur­day will go away shak­ing their heads as it was not good enough.

“We didn’t play with any pace, we didn’t close peo­ple down, we didn’t win any tack­les and we’re not cre­at­ing chances.

“Up un­til Christ­mas we were play­ing with a high tempo, but for what­ever rea­son we’re not do­ing now.

“We need to try and get that back as we look tired but we shouldn’t be. It’s not like the play­ers have had to work all day be­fore the match, so tired­ness shouldn’t af­fect them.”

Rhys Turner and Paul Lewis were miss­ing from Satur­day’s game, and Askey isn’t sure when they’ll be back.

“Rhys has a prob­lem with his an­kle so we will have to see how he is and Paul has a ham­string prob­lem.”
