VIDEO: Our Last Meeting With Cheltenham Town

23 January 2019

We start our build up to this weekend's crucial Sky Bet League Two clash at Cheltenham Town, we take a look back at the last time we faced The Robins.

On a warm and sultry evening back in August, The Silkmen welcomed our Gloucestershire opponents to the Moss Rose in what proved to be Gary Johnson's last match in charge of the visitors.

Danny Whitaker put Macc into the lead with a ferocious free-kick in the 19th minute and for much of what transpired, it seemed like The Silkmen would go on to extend the scoreline.

Harry Smith, Nathan Blissett and Koby Arthur all went close for the hosts, before visiting 'keeper Scott Flinders saved a 75th minute Whitaker penalty.

The visitors were catalysed by this and restored parity with just five minutes left on the clock when Manny Duku pounced to hand Cheltenham a share of the spoils.

Here are the match highlights -
