Match Preview: Grimsby Town vs Macclesfield Town

21 September 2019

Macclesfield Town make the journey to Cleethorpes to face Grimsby Town for the third time this season, as we look to avenge our Second Round Carabao Cup exit.

On this occasion we head to Blundell Park in Sky Bet League Two action after our midweek 1-1 draw against Newport County in the inaugural ‘Unsponsored Derby’.

This is what Daryl had to say ahead of the match:

We hope to see as many of you as possible make the journey with us to support the team and help push them onto what will hopefully prove to be a positive result against The Mariners.

As for our opponents, they have picked up four points since our Carabao Cup encounter; with a 2-2 draw away at Oldham followed by a 1-0 defeat away to Salford City on Tuesday evening.

This leaves Grimsby in 11th place in the Sky Bet League Two standings, ahead of us in 14th on goal-difference.

This is their first match at home since our Carabao Cup clash, and despite eventually claiming the victory that night courtesy of a penalty shootout, The Mariners have failed to record a home victory in 90 minutes since 24th August.

Opposition manager Michael Jolley had this to say ahead of the game:

“The game-and-a-half we’ve played with them so far has been very close and competitive between two closely-matched teams.

“So we’d expect a similar type of game, but of course we’re at home – it’s a game we want to try and get on the front foot in and try to win.

“It’s a game between two closely-matched teams – I definitely think they’ve improved their squad from last season.

“I think Daryl McMahon’s a good manager and doing a good job there.

“We saw the game they had against Newport County, and they were excellent in the week so it’s going to be another tough game for us.”

Match Report: Grimsby Town 1-0 Macclesfield Town

21 September 2019

The Silkmen fell to a narrow defeat away at Blundell Park as an Ethan Robson strike secured all three points for our hosts.

In a match of few chances for either side, Robson skipped past Jay Harris and into the Macclesfield area before unleashing a fierce strike into the roof of Owen Evans’ net early in the second half.

Grimsby started the better of the two sides, with Ahkeem Rose finding a way into a dangerous position before seeing Miles Welch-Hayes recover well to block his effort.

Macc responded to this early scare through Jay Harris, but his strike from distance was tipped around the post by the outstretched arm of McKeown in the Grimsby net.

Robson came close midway through the first half, but he failed to connect with a header and Owen Evans comfortably saw the ball behind.

The Silkmen grew into the game as the half progressed, with Theo Archibald trying his luck on a number of occasions from just outside the area.

Our best chance of the half came ten minutes before the interval, as some good link up play between Paddy Osadebe and Virgil Gomis almost saw the latter through on goal; but McKeown was alert to the danger and just about claimed the ball ahead of Gomis.

Barely ten minutes after the second period started, Grimsby scored what proved to be the decisive goal as Robson fired home from close in.

Macc almost replied instantly, but Gomis couldn’t quite connect cleanly with a close-range volley and the ball sailed wide of McKeown’s post.

Substitute Max Wright had the best chance of the second half, but he could only strike the post after a well worked Grimsby move.

The Silkmen continued to push for the equaliser with Joe Ironside almost connecting with a Welch-Hayes headed cross, but we could not find a way through as Grimsby held on to secure all three points.
