Match Preview: Macclesfield Town vs Port Vale

24 September 2019

The Silkmen turn their attention to Trophy action this evening, as we welcome John Askey back to the Moss Rose with his Port Vale side.

After Saturday’s narrow 1-0 defeat at the hands of Grimsby Town, Daryl and the team will look to bounce back against Vale as we look to make it two wins from two in this competition after overcoming Newcastle’s U21s at the beginning of the month.

Speaking after Saturday's match at Grimsby Town, Daryl stressed the need to push on and a desire to see an improvement to our recent form.

“I don’t want us to meander along like a mid-table team, I think we’ve got a chance to really develop across the season but the players have to want it too.”

We hope to see as many of you as possible make it down to the Moss this evening to welcome John back to the club and push our lads onto another positive result in this competition.

Our visitors come into the match after securing a point following a late comeback which sealed a 2-2 draw against Mansfield Town on Saturday.

Vale also won their opening game in this competition, a 2-1 home success over League One Shrewsbury, placing even more significance on this evening’s match.

However, Vale manager John Askey is facing something of an injury crisis ahead of the match, and he had this to say ahead of the game:

“Whether it’s [the injuries] because we’ve got more athletic players who are very pacey, or it’s something that we’re doing or not doing in training, it’s something we need look at because we can’t afford to keep having players out.

“We’ll have to have a look [at the squad] Monday, Manny’s [Oyeleke] going to be training Monday, David Amoo, Jordan Archer, although I think Jordan will be a little bit longer.

“So we have got one or two coming back now, we’ll just have to see how the walking wounded are, and go from there on Monday.”

Match Report: Macclesfield Town 2 v 3 Port Vale

24 September 2019

Macclesfield Town were beaten 2-3 in the Trophy ,as John Askey made his return to The Moss Rose with his Port Vale side.

Macclesfield were the early leaders in the tight opening of the game. Joe Ironside put the Silkmen one up in the 16th minute, after steering the ball past Scott Brown following a long ball over the top of the Vale defence. 

However, the Valliant’s restored parity in the 33rd minute when Scott Burgess powerfully drove the ball past Reice Charles-Cook from outside the box.

The equaliser didn’t stop the creative presence of the Silkmen attack, as another long ball over the defence found Ironside through on goal again. However, he was unlucky to lose his balance and struggled to slot the ball past the Port Vale 'keeper.

The second half wasn’t as fortunate for the Silkmen, a deflected effort from Ritchie Bennett beat  Charles-Cook in the 51st minute to put Vale into the ascendancy.

Shortly after, the visitors extended their lead with a goal from Jake Taylor in what was a well worked team goal from the Valiants.

Theo Archibald managed to grab a late goal to give the Silkmen slight hope in the last moments of the game to make it 2 - 3. It was a superb strike after cutting in from the right-hand side of the pitch, the keeper had no chance as he curled it into the top corner.

In the first half Macc nearly scored within the first ten minutes of the game, Eddie Clarke conducted a superb cross after his run down the left-hand side of the pitch. It found the lurking head of Jacob Blyth who was unfortunate to see Scott Brown pull off a wonderful save to put the ball out for a corner.

In the competition the away side came into the group stage clash undefeated after beating Shrewsbury at home 2-1 earlier this month. The Silkmen defeated a young and promising Newcastle United Under 21 side previously to give them three points in the Trophy Group D.
