Match Preview: Macclesfield Town v Morecambe

6 April 2019

Macclesfield Town face The Shrimps of Morecambe this afternoon, it what represents a vital Sky Bet League Two clash for Sol Campbell's side.

Lying just one point behind Yeovil Town, Macc will go into the clash full of confidence after an inspiring run of results which has generated much optimism amongst the Silkmen faithful.

This was exemplified by last week's gallant one-all draw at league-leaders Lincoln City, although it will be wins that the team will now be focused on achieving in order to preserve our cheshire EFL status.

The whole squad are up for the fight and here are Sol's pre match thoughts -


In terms of team selection, Sol is thought to have just Rhys Taylor sidelined as he continues his rehabilitation following a hip injury.

Our visitors are currently residing in eighteenth place in the Sky Bet League Two table, having accumulated 45 points from their 40 games played.

They have been on a fine run of late, which has seen them pick up ten points from the last six games.

Despite this, Morecambe's away form continues to be hit and miss, with Jim Bentley's side having won only five times on the road this season.

Their last venture away from the Globe Arena resulted in a 4 - 0 reversal at Swindon Town at the end of March.

As always, we really need your support this afternoon. The team are literally giving everything for the cause and you really can make a difference.
