Team News
Boss Mark Robins has doubts over skipper Ian Shsrps and also strike duo Adam Le Fondre and Paul Warne ahead of the game. All three missed the midweek cup loss at West Brom.

Andy Liddell and Marc Joseph may keep their starting places whilst Kevin Ellison may be recalled to freshen things up. Nick Fenton and Pablo Mills are fit after coming off at the Hawthorns with cramp.

The Silkmen must do without defenders Nat Brown and Sean Hessey, but Keith Alexander has a fully fit squad to select from minus the duo.
