Askey On Wrexham Win

Macclesfield Town
Posted:Sun 10 Dec 2017

Macclesfield Town manager John Askey says he “couldn’t have asked for anything better” as his side went back to the top of the National League with a 4-1 rout of Wrexham.

The Silkmen are now undefeated in their last six games, and after battling snowy weather conditions in Saturday’s early kick-off, they were victorious in the table-topping clash.  

Scott Wilson opened the scoring for Macc with a composed finish, carrying the ball from the half-way line to go one-on-one with the goalkeeper before slotting home.

Wrexham levelled the scoring with 15 minutes to go, but Wilson bagged two more to earn him the match ball, before David Fitzpatrick scored his first goal for the club in added time.

“I couldn’t have asked for anything better,” said a pleased John Askey after the game. “I thought we played well, started the game well – had a bit of a wobble when they scored – but when our second goal went in we controlled the game again.”

Prior to the game Wrexham had only conceded 14 goals all season, making the four Macclesfield put past them even more impressive.

John said: “We caused them problems, and we could’ve had more. I’m really pleased and if the boys weren’t confident before, I think they are now.”
