Bradford 1-0 Silkmen

Macclesfield Town missed their chance to climb out of the bottom two as they were beaten 1-0 at Bradford City.

Macc's best chance came in the first half as Ben Mills fired over from close range, but a goal from Hanson after 65 minutes would be the only goal of the game.

Mill's chance came a few minutes after he had missed the target from the edge of the area. It was a scrappy first half with neither side really able to take control but Jose Veiga had to be on form to save one-on-one.

The second half was also a difficult affair, not helped by a referee who seemed to have found his cards at half time and booked eight players in the second half!

But again the Silkmen failed to impose themselves on the opposition and chances were few and far between.

Even the hosts eventual winner was only a half chance as a soft header looked destined to be gathered by Viega before Mills attempted clearance sliced into his own net.

The Silkmen reacted with three subs in three minutes as Tomlinson and Smith came on for Mills and Futcher before Chalmers was replaced by Fairhurst.

But despite throwing everything forward - including Nat Brown also joining the attack, the Silkmen couldn't force a goal, leaving the club staring down the barrel.
