Per­fect work­out at Bury

Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE - SHELDAN KEAY

JOHN Askey felt last week’s friendly against Bury was a per­fect work­out for his Mac­cles­field Town side.

Scott Wil­son got the only goal of the game to earn his team the vic­tory against their League One op­po­nents.

Askey was pleased with what he saw from his play­ers, and felt they pro­duced ev­ery­thing that he asked for.

“It went well. It was a good work­out and good to see ev­ery­body,” he told the club’s of­fi­cial web­site. “Ev­ery­body that played put a shift in and it was a good per­for­mance not only first half but in the sec­ond half as well, we’re get­ting closer.

“I think it’s im­por­tant that you get a goal. It was a re­ally great strike and we cre­ated quite a few chances, we should’ve had two or three more and we’ve got play­ers play­ing who look like they can play.

Macc made a lot of changes in the game, and Askey was pleased that they could pull it off with no is­sues.

“It’s great that we are able to change the squad around so much play­ing against a League One side,” he said.

“We’re com­pet­ing so it bodes well, but we won’t get too car­ried away. Ob­vi­ously it’s im­por­tant to us though and what we’re look­ing for in the run up to the sea­son.”

Askey’s as­sis­tant Steve Wat­son was also pleased, as he added: “There was a bit of neg­a­tiv­ity be­cause of the play­ers we’ve lost, but I’m sure the sup­port­ers are pos­i­tive about the lads that have come in to re­place them.”
