Perfect workout at Bury
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.”
