Match Preview: Macclesfield Town v Leyton Orient

10 August 2019

After last week's mammoth trip down to Exeter City, the Silkmen return to the Moss Rose later today as we entertain Leyton Orient.
 
The lads will be eager to put last week's cruel defeat behind them and register our points of the season against the current National League champions and we will need you right behind us every step of the way.
 
Sol Campbell will have four new faces in contention for a starting place, as Reice Charles-Cook, Vigil Gomis, Connor Kirby and Corey O'Keeffe all joined the club yesterday.
 
Speaking ahead of the game, here are the manager's pre-match thoughts -
 
In the 23rd minute, we invite all fans to pay tribute to Kavan Maddocks, who sadly passed away last week in what proved to be a tragically young age. We would ask you to join us all in a minutes applause for a devoted and passionate supporter, who will be sorely missed by us all.
 
Orient come in to the game buoyed by a 1 - 0 victory over Cheltenham Town last week, in what also proved to be an emotionally-charged encounter.
 
The O's completed their first game in the post-Justin Edinburgh era, with Josh Wright - Justin's last signing, scoring the only goal of the game.

Match Report: Macclesfield 3 v 0 Leyton Orient

10 August 2019

Sol Campbell’s Macclesfield team picked up their first win of the 2019/20 season and recorded their biggest win since returning to the Football League in the process.

Goals from Theo Archibald, Paddy Osadebe and Theo Vassell wrapped up the points for the Silkmen in a comfortable display against Leyton Orient.

After a slow start with no clear cut chances, Jay Harris dinked a pass which released Ironside through on goal, but the linesman flagged for offside. I

The Silkmen had a glorious chance blocked in 19th minute after Orient keeper Dean Brill scuffed his clearance straight to the feet of Theo Archibald but he couldn’t finish from range into the open goal.

It took 25 minutes for the first shot on target to arrive and it came in the shape of a powerful Ben Stephens volley after the ball fell to his feet from a blocked Osadebe attempt.

Orients first chance came to Josh Wright after the impressive James Brophy crossed into the box, but his shot was saved well by Owen Evans.

However, the deadlock broken by a sensational strike from Theo Archibald in the 31st minute. The wing-back found himself in space around 25 yards from goal and his curling, dipping effort flew over the head of Brill to the delight of the Silkmen fans.

The first half petered out with Macc truly in the driving seat and deservedly in the lead.

Leyton Orient started strongly in the second half and Silkmen keeper Evans pulled off a wonderful acrobatic save to deny Dan Happe’s powerful header.

Macc absorbed Orient pressure well but their break came in the 57th minute when Osadebe found Stephens through on goal, but the O’s defence did enough to put him off balance and his shot was saved.

Macc continued to counter attack after a flurry of Orient corners and their second goal came from a fast move up the pitch started by Welch-Hayes. The defender’s delightful pass put Osadebe 1-on-1 with Brill in the Orient goal and the midfielder held his nerve to finish calmly.

After a shaky start to the half, the Silkmen grew back into the game. Theo Vassell put the icing on the top of a brilliant Macclesfield performance in the 83rd minute when he powered home a header from Jak McCourt’s corner.

Gomis could have made it four in the dying moments, but the debutant couldn’t get away from the chasing Orient defenders and his attempt was gathered easily.

However, no more goals were scored and Macc were good value for their win as they opened their home campaign with a bang.

 

Macclesfield; Evans, Clarke, Kelleher, Welch-Hayes, Vassell, Archibald, McCourt (Kirby ‘85), Harris, Osadebe, Stephens (Gomis ’78), Ironside (Blyth ’62).

Subs not used; Charles-Cook, Horsfall, O’Keeffe.
