Head2Head & Team News - Macclesfield (A)

Last updated : 25 October 2008 By Deano
The Millers go into today's game with no fresh injury concerns and looking to make it back to back away wins to close in on the pack infront of them at the foot of League Two, to do so though they must secure their first ever win at Moss Rose in their fifth attempt.

Opponents Macc Town have just three wins to their name so far, and lost out 2-1 at home to Lincoln on Tuesday night as Rotherham returned from Bury with a maximum haul.

Complacency is probably boss Mark Robins' biggest danger as his players look to avoid a repeat of the defensive shambles of a week ago agauinst Barnet at Don Valley, although Tuesday went along way towards righting that wrong.

Of tomorrow's game, Robbo explained to the BBC: "We're ok and looking forward to the game, I think it will be another good test for us. I think we have played well in the majority of games, but other teams are raising their games against us and we have got to be able to cope with it."

Richie Barker, who again came off the bench for in-form Drewe Broughton at Gigg Lane, looks like settling for a place amongst the substitutes yet again as he returns to one of his former clubs. The Millers originally signed Barker from the Silkmen eight years ago.

Danny Harrison will continue in midfield after his impressive return from a three game injury lay off.

Home boss Keith Alexander has issued a warning to his side to be on their metal. The game's attendance may be swelled as Macc continue their under16 offers for home fans this weekend with discounted and free tickets in some areas.

They remain without Gareth Evans who is banned but could include new loanee, Argentine defender Joaquin Medinilla.
