Askey On Barrow Test

Macclesfield Town
Posted:Fri 10 Nov 2017

The Silkmen face another away trip this Saturday as they take on Barrow at the Holker Street stadium. Third-placed Macclesfield Town will be looking to keep the pressure on leaders Dover, with a game in hand over second-placed Wrexham.

Manager John Askey spoke to SilkmenTV about the test his side will face on Saturday: “The position we are in is very pleasing at this time of the season but it will count for nothing unless we are there at the end of the season and we will be giving it our best to get back on a winning run and if we can do that at Barrow then it leaves us in a great position.

“Ady Pennock has gone in and they have got some good players and I think he will get them organised and maximise their potential.

“They have got good players, they can score goals and they are a strong side. It will be tough but we have got to play our game and hopefully we can play like we have been doing and put the ball in the back of the net.”

Barrow will be disappointed to find themselves currently inside the National League relegation zone, and Askey is wary of the threat they can pose.

“It is a place where we haven’t done too badly the last couple of times, a couple of draws, but sometimes the elements can be as much of a problem as the opposition. We are aware of that but it is important we carry on playing our own game – it has brought success so far so hopefully we can go on.
