With Macclesfield’s frustrating defeat against Maidstone behind them, attentions now turn to Saturday’s clash with Torquay United at Plainmoor.
The Silkmen will be aiming to claim back to back wins in the next two games for the third time this season but it will be no easy test.
Despite being in the relegation places, it is a new era at Torquay. Following the departure of Kevin Nicolson, Gary Owers has taken the helm at Plainmoor and will look to keep them in the National League.
Whereas Macclesfield manager John Askey has been speaking to mtfc.co.uk ahead of the game.
“This game won’t be easy. It’s a tough place to go to, you look at their team and they’ve not got a bad side.
"They’ve just had a change of manager and they got a good result at the weekend so it won’t be easy.
“It’s not a place where we’ve done particularly well in over the years but that’s in the past and now it’s about this Saturday and trying to get a result. It won’t be through lack of trying and we know if the group performs we’ve got a great chance of winning it."
Askey also said that he’s looking for a reaction in the game, after the defeat to Maidstone.
“I’m looking for a reaction. You’re looking every week to find out what makes the players tick because each player needs to find out, what gives you that consistency and which will allow them the chance to play at a higher level.
They’ve all got ability to be more consistent, but its doing it week in week out.”
