John Askey Reflects On Woking Result

Macclesfield manager John Askey was adamant that his side need to improve in front of goal if they are to kill off teams.

Elliot Durrell grabbed his first goal in a Silkmen shirt but Woking turned the score on its head before half time taking a 2-1 lead into the interval. Despite attack after attack in the second half, Macc couldn’t muster an equaliser in a frustrating afternoon in front of goal.

After the game, John Askey spoke to mtfc.co.uk with his thoughts on the game.

“I’m really disappointed and it’s hard to put into words.” Said Askey.

“Games like that we should be winning and we missed a lot of chances like we did against Chester and Dover and that’s something we’ve got to improve on, but the main thing is we’re creating chances, and if we weren’t then that’s when I’d be really worried. However, I can’t understand how we’ve lost it.”

“It was going so well for 25/30mins. We were playing well but their goal changed the game. I think if you play like that you’re going to win games if its tight at the back, they were sloppy goals to give away but on the positive side we played well.”

Askey also said that his side need to improve their concentration levels and defence if they are to win games.

“With their goals, it’s been a lack of concentration and that’s been the case for two or three games with concentration near the end of the game, there’s no excuses and it’s a game we should’ve won.”

“Whoever you play its tough and if you don’t defend probably you’ve got a problem. Next time out hopefully we can play as good a level of football but tighten up defensively.”
