History of the Macclesfield Town v Rotherham United fixture

Rotherham face a trip to Macclesfield Town at Moss Rose on Saturday afternoon, looking to break their duck against the hosts. Three-quarters of the few games have ended in defeat for The Millers.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in October 2007, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a League Two match.

Recent respective form guides

Macclesfield Town's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While The Silkmen have scored 8, a worringly large 17 have been leaked at the other end.

Rotherham's away form is steady, collecting 2 wins and 3 draws from the last six. The Millers have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 6 goals for and 4 against, beating Bury last time out.

Macclesfield find themselves struggling down in 17th position in the league having picked up 13 points from their 12 matches. Rotherham are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 5 points from 12 matches but having wiped out their 17 point deduction.
