Artell: "Macclesfield Will Be A Test Regardless Of Their Problems"

4 December 2019

David Artell believes that despite their off field problems, Macclesfield Town have enjoyed a promising season to date. The Silkmen have their financial concerns and their players have announced that they are currently on strike due to unpaid wages.

That has put this weekend’s fixture at the Moss Rose in doubt but the Alex boss says that it is business as usual as far as we are concerned.

Ahead of this weekend’s proposed fixture, Artell said: “Macclesfield have had their problems but they have had a decent season on the pitch. Their home record is good and it is a tough place to go.

“We went there in the Youth Cup and if I’m honest their pitch helps them. It is not up to League standard. That gives them an advantage.

“Last year wasn't sustainable and it looks like another case of an owner spending above their means and then not honouring contracts and paying players and staff. It is just not sustainable but how others run their football clubs is up to them.

“The new manager has gone in there and he has done well. He has done a good job and in football terms it will a tough game for us.

“We lost our last away game at Northampton in the league and drew at Eastleigh in the FA Cup. Our away form has been good this season, so it is important to us to get back to winning ways away from home.”
