Macclesfield Town boss John Askey is expecting a tough contest when the Silkmen take on Tranmere Rovers in a two-legged semi-final tie ahead of a potential trip to Wembley.

Macc made the semis thanks to a quick-fire brace from Rhys Browne in the replay against Dulwich, and now face promotion chasing Tranmere as they look to bring in a trophy.

Speaking after the match with Dulwich at the Moss, Askey said: “It’ll be a test for us and for them. Our record against Tranmere isn’t bad! We’ll just hope everybody gets behind us over the two games and we have a good turnout.

“Obviously Tranmere are a big club and will be bringing a lot of supporters with them so it’s important we do and they’re vocal. Like I said previously whether we’re playing good, bad or indifferently, everybody needs to support the players in these games and try and push them on and help us earn a trip to Wembley.

“The crowd can be so important and it’s important everybody behind us sticks together. Hopefully it’ll be the same as last time we faced them back to back when we came out on top. We’re all looking forward to it.”
