Match Preview: Macclesfield Town v Crawley Town

7 September 2019

The Silkmen return to the Moss Rose this afternoon, as we take on Crawley Town in our latest Sky Bet League Two fixture.
 
Daryl McMahon's side will be eager to continue a run which has seen them defeated in just one of the last eight games and there is no doubt that everything will be given in pursuit of maximum points from 15:00 today.
 
With a crucial Carabao Cup tie at Grimsby looming large, The Silkmen will be looking to propel themselves into the higher echelons of the league table and continue what has been an incredibly positive start.
 
Speaking ahead of the game, Daryl paid tribute to the work-rate and honesty of his squad, yet also stated that there was much to improve upon over the course of the coming weeks.
 
 
Crawley come into the game sitting one place below The Silkmen, having also accumulated ten points from the opening six games.
 
Gabriele Cioffi's side began the campaign with a 2 - 1 defeat at Carlisle United, before picking up their first points of the season with a 2 - 0 victory over EFL newcomers, Salford City.
 
A two-all draw with Scunthorpe United then ensued, before they suffered a 2 - 1 home defeat at the hands of Crewe Alexandra.
 
The Red Devils then enjoyed a 3 - 2 victory at National League Champions Leyton Orient, before claiming all three points courtesy of a 1 - 0 victory over Cheltenham Town last Saturday.
 
There is no doubt that today's visitors will prove to be a stern test and will still be buoyed by their incredible Carabao Cup victory over Norwich City.
 
However, this side have proved that they are a match for anyone in this league and we go into the game knowing that we are more than capable of reigning victorious.
