Macclesfield Town manager John Askey believes that his players know the importance of tonight’s FA Cup clash against Oxford United.
The Silkmen will host League One side Oxford in the Second Round which will be live to a national audience on BBC2.
Speaking ahead of the important clash, Askey has said it’s all about the supporters and his squad tonight.
“It’s more about the players and supporters tonight. For myself it’s to concentrate on the league but if players are trying to impress on a higher level then it’s important they do well against bigger teams.
The players know the importance of the competition, not only for the club but for themselves.”
The gaffer also had his say on previous season’s where cup runs have assisted Macclesfield heavily in the past.
“When I took over we were about £500,000 in debt with very little money coming in. It’s only the fact that we’ve done well on the pitch with cup runs and the people who come here and support the club, we have survived and we’re trying to push on.”
