John On Team News

John Askey has revealed that he expects to have a clean bill of health to choose from when his side travel to Leyton Orient this weekend.

The Silkmen boss may be left with a selection headache. His team have won eight of their last 10 games in all competitions, with every player playing their part along the way.

The Silkmen boss made four changes for the FA Cup tie last weekend, as his side comfortably recorded a 5-0 victory over Stourbridge. Three of the players brought back into the fold on the day (Koby Arthur, Tyrone Marsh, and Scott Burgess) all found the net, whilst Kieran Kennedy was replaced late-on after suffering, what looked to be, a nasty blow to the eye.

However, he is set to be available for the trip to Brisbane Road, with the manager also saying that the rest of the players introduced at Stourbridge did their chances no harm at all.

He said: “It looks like everyone is fit. The only issue we may have had was obviously Kieran (Kennedy) who had a bad blow in the game last weekend. He’s been training with us ahead of Orient, so we’re hopeful it won’t affect him.

“We obviously managed to rest people last Saturday and, for me, it couldn’t have gone any better. If you’d have planned it to work out the way it then you would have hoped for a situation exactly like that.

“It was a good day for us but that’s gone and we need to make sure we move on to the next one now.”
