Lancashire Ready For Season Opener

Defender Previews Macclesfield Test

3 August 2018

Olly Lancashire is raring to go for the 2018/19 Sky Bet League Two season opener and wants everyone to pull together from the off.

Town welcome Macclesfield to The Energy Check County Ground tomorrow (3pm Kick-Off) and Lancashire wants to hit the ground running. 

"Last season is gone now. We had a few issues but we've got the Gaffer and Neil McDonald who have both worked at the top and every player should be listening to them," he said.

'It has been a case of so far so good and if everyone takes on board what the gaffer is saying throughout the season then we'll be successful.

"We've got a lot of competition for places and everyone is pushing each other so that will only help. 

"We've been looking at Macclesfield this week and you can never tell with pre-season results, so it is difficult.

"We think we know how they are going to set-up but ultimately it is down to us, we are at home and we expect to go out there and do well.

"We want everyone to come together. There are going to be highs and lows, it is a very long season but if we are going to be successful then we need everyone on the same page and singing from the same hymn sheet."

"We want everyone to come together. There are going to be highs and lows, it is a very long season but if we are going to be successful then we need everyone on the same page and singing from the same hymn sheet.

"We all want the same goal which is promotion."

And Lancashire is also well aware that former Town loanee Harry Smith will be one to keep an eye on tomorrow afternoon.

"We all know Harry pretty well and we know his strengths and we know his weaknesses, so it will be good to go up against him," he added.

"He's a big lad and we know what he can do so we'll have to be careful.

"We'll have to try and keep him outside the penalty area because that is where he's most dangerous given his size.

"We've worked on things not to just stop him but their whole team as well."
