Team News

Macclesfield will go into the game full of confidence after those two wins, with a five point lead at the top of the National League. Ryan Lloyd is likely to miss the game through injury, but John Askey may look to rotate his squad with two games in a week.

Maidenhead United, just seven points off the play-offs, may also be looking to rotate their squad after a Tuesday night game, in which they beat Eastleigh 3-1.

Last Time Out

The last meeting between the two sides came at the end of November, where the points were shared in a 1-1 draw. Ryan Lloyd gave the Silkmen the lead in the 54th minute, but Jake Hyde earned the Magpies a draw two minutes from time when his shot glanced off the post and into the goal.

One to watch

Known for his versatility, 24-year-old Pritchard can play anywhere down the left side, and has made over 150 appearances for the club. He signed a new one-year contract after securing promotion with the Magpies, and was a key part of that successful side. He will be the biggest danger in the Maidenhead side as they take on the Silkmen, with Pritchard coming into the match as top scorer for the Magpies with eight goals from midfield. Pritchard has stepped up after the exit of prolific goal scorer Dave Tarpey.
