Askey: "A Nice Position To Be In"

Macclesfield manager John Askey says the squad are keeping their feet on the ground after going top of the National League following their victory over Guiseley on Tuesday evening.

Elliott Durrell’s late goal was the difference between the two sides, and it was enough to send The Silkmen ahead of all challengers at this early stage in the season.

Though he admits the table makes for nice reading, Askey is adamant the boys will not get carried away and there’s still a long way to go before the end of the season.

“We’re very pleased, obviously,” he said. “It’s still early days yet, and we had to dig in at times but I thought we deserved to get the three points.

“We controlled the game really, in and around their area for long periods of time but the ball wasn’t really dropping. Elliott is a match winner and he proved that again today. We’re really pleased and it’s pleasing as well knowing we’ve got a squad capable of this.

“We’re not getting carried away but it’s a nice place to be. Obviously we’re not going to speak to soon but topping the table breeds confidence.

“We hope this is a start of a good run. The players should be going out now and really expect to be winning games every week.”
