After Saturday’s narrow 2-1 defeat to Eastleigh talk turned to squad depth and summer recruitment as we head into the
Manager John Askey spoke to SilkmenTV about how he feels his summer recruits have settled in, and any areas he may look to strengthen.
He said: “I think we have got a good squad. But if you get a few injuries – like when Jared (Hodgkiss) is out then we haven’t got a right back. When we want to change the way we play with a big and strong striker we don’t necessarily have that.
“But I think everyone is happy with the squad that we have got, and as the season goes on and we need more bodies, if we can get quality in to match what we have already got, it will hopefully improve things.”
“I am happy with the players we have got, I think we have done really well and we have got value for money and we are playing good football so I am sure the supporters that come along enjoy watching them. We always punch above our weight and we are doing again and there’s no reason why we can’t be up there.
“They’ll be some ups and downs, but we have got a great chance of doing something good this season if we can keep this squad together.”
