Relegation could affect York - Askey

Relegation could affect York - Askey

Macclesfield Town boss John Askey believes York City could well suffer a relegation hangover at the weekend FA Trophy final.

The Minstermen will be playing sixth-tier football for the first time this coming season following a disastrous second consecutive relegation.

In contrast their weekend opponents were challenging for a play-off spot for most of the campaign despite twice being beaten by their rivals.

"We know that York are strong up front but on our day, when we are playing with the ball quickly, not many teams can compete with us," Askey told Macclesfield official website. "You won't know until the day [about the relegation effect]. It must leave people flat when you have gone down and has an effect on the Football Club.

"Hopefully it would have had an impact on them in a bad way," he added. "They're a decent team and have spent a lot of money. They're a different proposition to what they were at the start of the season so it will be a tough game but one we are looking forward to."

However, Askey's York counterpart Gary Mills has already labelled the weekend contest as a brand new start and the first game of a new season.

And City's fabulous supporters are certainly following his sentiments with currently approaching 7,500 of them preparing to roar on their favourites at Wembley.
