Macclesfield Town return to action tomorrow as they begin their pre-season campaign by hosting Championship side Derby County at the Moss Rose. Let’s take a look at our first pre-season game.
Boss John Askey looks set to take a look at a number of trialists tomorrow. Speaking at the fans forum on Wednesday, Askey confirmed former Birmingham midfielder Koby Arthur and former Chester winger Elliott Durrell are in line to feature for Macclesfield on Saturday. A number of other trial players could be in the Silkmen side.
Several new signings could feature for John Askey’s men with the likes of Ryan Lloyd, Scott Wilson, Keith Lowe and Courtney Richards set for Moss Rose debuts.
Derby fielded two separate XI’s for their 4-0 win at Kidderminster on Tuesday and are expected to name a strong team tomorrow.
One To Watch – Bradley Johnson
Enigmatic midfielder Bradley Johnson joined ‘The Rams’ in September 2015 for a club record fee. Since joining the 30-year-old has become a key cog in the Derby County machine and a firm favourite amongst the supporters. He is one of the most well-rounded midfielders in the second-tier.
