Macc Town v Kid­der­min­ster (Sat, 3pm) Wrex­ham v Macc Town (Mon, 3pm)

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORS -

KID­DER­MIN­STER visit on Satur­day look­ing to de­fend their own un­beaten start to the sea­son.

AF­TER draw­ing at Lin­coln on the open­ing day, they’ve chalked up wins at home to Al­fre­ton and Dart­ford and have yet to con­cede a goal.

THEIR seven points from nine puts them fifth on goal dif­fer­ence and rep­re­sents their best start to a league sea­son in 23 years.

IT’S a far cry from the 2012/13 sea­son, when they re­cov­ered from a win­less first 10 games to fin­ish sec­ond. Last year they missed out on the play-offs, in sev­enth.

MID­FIELDER Josh O’Keefe is an on­go­ing in­jury con­cern for Har­ri­ers boss Gary Whild, as a foot prob­lem has ruled him out of ac­tion so far this term.

WHILD has brought in some ex­pe­ri­ence in de­fence with the re­cruit­ing of full-back Kevin Ni­chol­son.

LAST sea­son’s meet­ings be­tweenMacc and Kiddy saw the Har­ri­ers take four points from two games.

WREXHAMbeat Macc to the chase to sign Con­nor Jen­nings this sum­mer.

THE young striker’s loan spell at Macc prompted Dragons boss Kevin Wilkin to sign him.

JEN­NINGS’ hat-trick gave Macc a 3-2 win when they met at the Moss last sea­son, though Wrex­ham won the re­turn fix­ture 1-0.

FOR­MER Nuneaton man­ager Wilkin has also added LouisMoult to strik­ing ranks that al­ready boast Andy Bishop and Nick Rush­ton and for­mer Notts County de­fend­erManny Smith to his de­fence.

LEFTBACK Neil Ash­ton, who had half a sea­son as a Silk­man, is in his fifth sea­son at the Race­course Ground.

THE Dragons’ 3-0 de­feat at home to Gateshead was sand­wiched between vic­to­ries over Dart­ford and Nuneaton.
