Below par from Macc

Con­tin­ued from back then we will get turned over,” he said.

“I’m sure the play­ers will be aware of that though and we tend to do bet­ter against the sup­pos­edly big­ger clubs in this league so we will wait and see.”

Mac­cles­field have strug­gled for goals in re­cent weeks, find­ing the net just twice in their last five league matches.

Their last game saw them held to a 0-0 draw with strug­glers Bore­ham Wood, and Askey felt his play­ers didn’t reach ex­pec­ta­tions.

“We were poor but hav­ing said that I don’t think they had a shot on our goal, but our per­for­mance was still below par,” he said.

“There wasn’t enough com­mit­ment, we had the best chances of the game but we couldn’t con­vert them, af­ter play­ing like that we didn’t de­serve any­thing more than a point.

“We con­cen­trated on our­selves, we knew about Bore­ham Wood’s threat, they’ve been strug­gling for goals, but the game was about our­selves and try­ing to cre­ate chances.

“For some rea­son it was lack­lus­tre, one or two put in a good ef­fort but some oth­ers didn’t.”

“It’s not a tac­ti­cal is­sue, it’s just about work rate and one or two look too com­fort­able, they’ve got to re­alise that they’re play­ing for con­tracts.”
