Boss John Askey admits it will be nice to be back on home soil on Friday. The Silkmen host Dover in a Friday night game at the Moss Rose and will be out to build on their unbeaten start to the season at the Moss.
Two previous draws against Hartlepool and Bromley perhaps could have resulted in victories for Askey’s men and the manager is targeting a strong campaign in front of the home supporters if his side are to challenge for a place in the top seven this term.
Speaking to mtfc.co.uk ahead of the game, John said: “We didn’t have a good record at home last season and if we could have done we would have ended up in the play-offs.
“This year it is vitally important for us and hopefully on Friday that will be the start of things to come.”
The boss is also hoping that a Friday night game could see a healthy crowd in attendance at the Moss.
He added: “As a player it is nice to play in on a Friday night. It usually generates a decent crowd and a decent game and hopefully the atmosphere will be good on Friday night. “
