Match Preview: Macclesfield Town vs Scunthorpe United

24 August 2019

Macclesfield Town will play host to Scunthorpe United this afternoon, as Daryl McMahon looks to get off the mark as Silkmen Head Coach.

In our last outing, on Tuesday evening we fell to a narrow 1 - 0 defeat at the hands of Morecambe; and the new man at the helm will be looking for a response against The Iron.

The Silkmen have no injury concerns to contend with and therefore are thought to go into the game with a clean bill of health.

As always, we will really need you all right behind us this afternoon, as we look to continue our promising start to the season.

Scunthorpe also fell to defeat in their last outing, a 3 - 2 loss away at Cambridge United, and find themselves bottom of the Sky Bet League Two table having taken one point from their four matches so far.

Our visitors are yet to pick up a point away from home this campaign with their only point to date coming in a 2 - 2 home draw with Crawley Town.

Scunthorpe also fell to defeat against Derby County in their Carabao Cup First Round tie - meaning they are yet to record a competitive victory so far this campaign.

Scunthorpe captain Andy Butler had this to say ahead of the game:

“Obviously, results haven’t gone for us so far with one draw and three losses, but we’ll take a positive approach and go into Macclesfield looking for three points.

“The games come thick and fast at the beginning of the season. Things have gone against us so far but with a little bit of luck we can hopefully turn that around from Saturday.”
