Fortress Moss Rose for Askey

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT - SHELDAN KEAY

MACC man­ager John Askey wants to make the Moss Rose a fortress again ahead of this week­end’s match against Lincoln City.

The Silk­men haven’t won at home since Novem­ber, af­ter be­gin­ning the sea­son with seven wins out of their first 11 home games.

Askey is con­fi­dent that they can end that poor run though, be­gin­ning when they take on the Imps on Satur­day.

“It’s Lincoln next and we need that win to get us go­ing and im­prove our home form,” he said.

“When you’re lack­ing con­fi­dence it’s dif­fi­cult but we know that we’ve got to start play­ing bet­ter.

“We picked up a point against Altrincham on Satur­day and that’s a start, but you could tell it were two teams play­ing that were des­per­ate for a win.

“We were strug­gling to pass the ball and keep it in their fi­nal third and it makes it dou­bly dif­fi­cult when you’re play­ing on a pitch that is not con­ducive to play.

“The good thing for us though is that ev­ery­body worked hard and we kept a clean sheet af­ter lim­it­ing them to very few chances.

“We’ve taken four points off Altrincham this sea­son so I hope that our fans are happy with that.”
