Old boys will make Macclesfield trip worth watching.
According to Imps supremo Chris Moyses. He told the Echo:-
"We have a few ex-Macc players , they have a few ex-Lincoln players, it all helps to spice things up. It will be a good game to be at. Having players like that, who are going back to their old clubs, they always like to put one over on them if they can. They really should not take much motivating for this one.”
Moyses didn’t hide his disappointment at the postponement of the Chester fixture and felt Macclesfield manager John Askey deserves praise for the way the Silkmen have performed this season-
“We actually wanted to play the game on Tuesday night with the momentum we have got,”
“We felt we had a good chance to go to Chester and come back with something. Macclesfield becomes a bigger game now, certainly because of where they are in the league and we need to set some stones out.
No I don’t know what that means either but it’s been a good week for the Imps, that postponement aside and City will present Macc with a stern test even given their impressive home form, provided of course they can keep eleven players on the pitch.
Moyses lauded the landing of Alan Power in the week and does not want to stop there hoping the influential Irishman will be the first of several signings:-
“Part of our plan is to get one or two more signed up within the next couple of weeks if we can. That’s a work in process, but we won’t put any pressure on anyone to be at the club. If they don’t want to be here then there’s no point in hanging about”
All this is a world away from the old wait and see approach which saw many of City’s targets sign for our rivals. Maybe the close relationship between manager and board is behind the new boldness but either way this has got to be good.
