After Tuesday’s exciting 2-2 draw at the Moss Rose stadium, thoughts turn to Saturday’s trip to Maidenhead.

With a long trip and a third game of the week on the horizon boss John Askey has hinted that he may freshen up his side ahead of the game in Berkshire.

But he will mindful of building on the late draw against Tranmere, something John was pleased with.

The Silkmen manager said: “It was a good game and we played good football. We controlled the majority of the game and looking back at the chances we had it was a game that we could have won, could have lost and we ended up drawing. But it is a point, it keeps us moving and stops Tranmere getting three points as well which could be crucial. Overall, pleased with the performance but we could do with the three points.”

With a last gasp goal from Tyrone Marsh giving the Silkmen the point, Askey said some of the players are feeling the pace during the busy fixture list running up to the festive period.

“There are one or two tired legs, they worked really hard again but that is to be expected this time of year. Luckily everyone is fit because we have probably got the smallest squad in the league so it is important that we don’t pick up injuries.”

As well as the all-important point, Tuesday’s draw saw Tyrone Marsh return to the scoresheet, and Askey was quick to praise his impact as well as Koby Arthur’s.

“With Tyrone scoring it gives him confidence, he has done nothing wrong all season, Koby came on and showed flashes of good play so it is pleasing to see that the players we have got in the squad are all capable of playing at this level."
