October would prove to be a largely positive month for Macc, who would go on to take seven points from a possible 12 in the league.
It was also the month we welcomed John Askey back to the Moss Rose as we faced his Port Vale side in Sky Bet League Two action.
Matchday 12: Cambridge United 2 v 2 Macclesfield Town (05/10/19)
Sam Smith scored a late equaliser after two goals in three second half minutes had given us the lead at the Abbey Stadium at the beginning of October.
Spurs loanee Jack Roles scored a stunning long-range goal inside the opening fifteen minutes; but strikes from Archibald and Gnahoua looked to have put the Silkmen in control before Smith’s late leveller.
Matchday 13: Macclesfield Town 2 v 1 Port Vale (12/10/19)
We welcomed John Askey back to the Moss Rose for the first time in a league fixture as we prepared to face Vale, and it would prove to be a memorable afternoon for the Silkmen on this occasion.
Richard Bennett gave the visitors the lead early on before goals from Gnahoua and Osadebe either side of the interval secured another league victory against the Valiants.
In doing so we halted Vale’s seven-game unbeaten run and leapfrogged the visitors in the league standings.
Matchday 14: Oldham Athletic 0 v 1 Macclesfield Town (19/10/19)
Jak McCourt netted a stunning late free-kick as we overcame Oldham in the dying moments of our clash at Boundary Park.
Jak came off the bench to snatch all three points for Macc, whilst some stubborn defending at the other end saw David Wheater’s header cleared off the line late on as the Latics looked for a leveller.
In one of the most memorable moments of the season to date, Jak beat the Oldham wall and goalkeeper before sprinting over to a rapturous reception from the Silkmen support.
Matchday 15: Cheltenham Town 3 v 0 Macclesfield Town (22/10/19)
Our run of back-to-back victories was abruptly halted against an inspired Cheltenham side at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium on a brisk Tuesday evening in the South-East.
Former Portsmouth and Leeds United striker Luke Varney opening the scoring in first half stoppage time before second half goals from Conor Thomas and Ryan Broom secured the points for promotion chasing Cheltenham.
