Dou­ble dream sce­nario for boss

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL - SHELDAN KEAY

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town man­ager John Askey ad­mits that the ul­ti­mate dream this sea­son would be se­cur­ing pro­mo­tion through the play-offs and win­ning the FA Tro­phy.

The Silk­men are firmly in the hunt for a play-off spot, and are also in the quar­ter­fi­nals of the FA Tro­phy.

Askey ad­mits that the amount of games his side have over the next few weeks will be tough, but is hop­ing his team can make it a cam­paign to re­mem­ber.

“That’s what we’re all hop­ing for and we’ve got a great chance of get­ting to the semi-fi­nals of the FA Tro­phy,” he said.

“We have got a lot of games though and that’s why I didn’t play Danny Whi­taker against Brain­tree so he can have a rest.

“That’s why last Tues­day’s loss against Bar­row was such a dis­ap­point­ment as if we had won then we would have been singing and danc­ing af­ter the Brain­tree match.”

Askey has had to re-shape his Mac­cles­field side over the past month, sign­ing sev­eral play­ers to re­place those that left the Silk­men in Jan­uary, but he has faith in his side.

“It’s dif­fi­cult when you bring new play­ers in but we’ve had to bring play­ers in be­cause four of ours have gone and the squad is no big­ger than what it was at the start of the sea­son,” he said.

“Ide­ally we would still have an­other cen­tre for­ward and maybe a left winger but I’m happy with the play­ers we’ve got as it’s more than enough to do well in the league.”
