John Askey has admitted that he has been really pleased with how the opening month of the season has gone for his side.
The Silkmen boss was speaking ahead of Saturday’s home game against Woking and told Silkmen TV that he has been impressed with the way his new look team has shaped up in the early weeks.
Following back-to-back defeats on the road, at Sutton and Gateshead respectively, Macclesfield battled back superbly to take maximum points over the busy Bank Holiday period. This included a 2-0 in the Cheshire derby away at Chester.
Now, Macclesfield will go into the game against their Surrey-based opponents and look to make it three wins on the bounce.
“I’m looking forward to the game at the weekend already,” Askey said.
“If you’d have told me in the summer that we’d have been in this position, I’d have been very pleased with that. So, I’m looking ahead to the Woking game now and we’re all looking to build on that start.
“This season, especially, I think there’s a really good feeling around the football club, the support has been terrific, and the players are all really enjoying it.”
Despite feeling confident about the chances of his side, the manager refused to get carried away and acknowledged that Saturday’s game will be a tough contest for his side.
“They’re all tough games in this league – you can’t take anybody lightly.
“They (Woking) have had a number of changes. They’ve had a new manager and been taken over, so, there will be some things that we haven’t seen before.
“But, as we know, if we play well, we’ve got more than enough to beat anyone.”
