Work to be done

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT - WILL ATKIN­SON

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town man­ager John Askey ad­mits there is still lots of work to be done af­ter his side’s run with­out a win stretched to eight games.

The Silk­men came from be­hind to draw 1-1 at home to Lin­coln City on Satur­day, leav­ing them 11 points from the play-off places with nine matches re­main­ing.

Jamie McCombe opened the scor­ing for the vis­i­tors be­fore Danny White­head equalised in the se­cond half.

Lin­coln’s goal came from a free-kick, and Askey was dis­ap­pointed with how his team han­dled the set-piece.

“It’s still an area I’m not com­fort­able with. We work and work and then dur­ing the first free kick we con­cede af­ter just switch­ing off, so it’s just not good enough,” he said.

“How can you leg­is­late for it? All you can do is prac­tice on the train­ing ground over and over and over, and as you can imag­ine that’s what we’ve done but again it’s our Achilles heel.”

While Askey was frus­trated with that as­pect of the match, he did feel there were cer­tain im­prove­ments on dis­play

Con­tin­ued on 74
