Match Preview: Stevenage v Macclesfield Town

31 August 2019

Macclesfield Town make the long journey down to Hertfordshire this afternoon, as we renew acquaintances with our old Conference rivals, Stevenage.

The Silkmen go into the game full of confidence, after making a terrific start to the 2019/20 campaign which currently sees us reside in fourth place - just two points behind early leaders Exeter City.

There is no doubt that Daryl McMahon's side will be looking to build on this, in a game which could potentially see us propelled to the League Two summit.

There is an incredibly positive vibe infiltrating all areas of the club at the minute and we spoke to Daryl ahead of the game about various topics including fan engagement, the Carabao Cup Third Round draw and of course, this afternoon's clash at The Lamex Stadium -

Our hosts are currently twenty-third in the Sky Bet League Two table, having amassed two points from their opening five encounters.

Dino Maamria's men started the season with a 2 - 0 defeat at Salford City and followed this up with a 1 - 0 home defeat at the hands of Exeter City.

A credible point was then picked up at National League champions Leyton Orient, before Bradford City claimed all three points at The Lamex Stadium courtesy of a 1 - 0 victory.

The Boro' come into the game on the back of a goalless draw at Mansfield Town last Saturday and will no doubt be eager to kick-start their season against us later on today.

With that in mind, it is imperative that all the loyal Silkmen fans that make the journey get right behind us and will the lads on from the first minute until the last.
