Askey’s plea for pos­i­tive re­turn

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT - WILL ATKIN­SON

JOHN Askey is urg­ing his Mac­cles­field Town play­ers to get back to play­ing pos­i­tive foot­ball ahead of the trip to Bore­ham Wood this week­end.

Bore­ham Wood are just one point above the rel­e­ga­tion zone, but Macc haven’t won in the Na­tional League since the 1-0 vic­tory over Tran­mere Rovers on Jan­uary 2.

The poor run of form has seen them drop down the ta­ble, al­though the Silk­men did put in a bright per­for­mance dur­ing the 1-1 draw with in-form Lin­coln City last Satur­day.

With that in mind, Askey wants them to con­tinue their progress and pick up the three points at Meadow Park.

“There were a lot of good per­for­mances against Lin­coln and the amount of chances we cre­ated was good so we can all feel a lit­tle bit bet­ter about our­selves,” he said.

“We need to be more pos­i­tive with our play though as we’ve not been pos­i­tive enough at times over the last few weeks.

“We need to try and en­joy the rest of the sea­son and try to win ev­ery game, that’s what it’s all about.

“The draw against Lin­coln was a move in the right di­rec­tion and hope­fully that will spur us on. I have never doubted the com­mit­ment of the play­ers as they have al­ways given 100 per cent.”
