STAY INtertoto Cup: Silkmen Set For Quarter-Final Clash

24 April 2020

Reice Charles-Cook's Macclesfield Town side face Lorient in the STAY INtertoto Cup Quarter-Finals this evening in what is sure to be another pulsating fixture.

The Silkmen secured their spot in the last eight with a dramatic victory over Sheffield Wednesday - after the two sides had been locked at 2 - 2 at the end of the second leg.

Our opponents on the other hand are rightly regarded as favourites for the competition, after a blistering showing so far.

They entered the knock-out phase courtesy of a perfect Group B record - which included victories over Derby County, VVV Venlo and Bradford City.

They followed this up with a convincing 8 - 0 victory over Crewe Alexandra in the round of 32 and proceeded to inflict a 6 - 0 mauling of Sunderland last time out.

Umut Bozok's team will be cast-iron favourites to progress this evening, yet Reice has already proved that he is a match for anyone and we have every confidence that he will guide us to glory once more!

The tie will be played over two legs which will run consecutively. Kick-off is set for 8pm and we will share streaming options on our social media channels shortly before kick-off.
