Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS -

A MIXED sea­son for For­est Green means they be­gan the week in mid-ta­ble, nine points off the pace at the top.

AHEAD of tak­ing on Torquay on Tues­day they’d won two of nine games and were fac­ing a points de­duc­tion for field­ing an in­el­i­gi­ble player in their first-day win over South­port.

ADRIAN Pen­nock took over from the Leeds-bound Dave Hock­a­day in the sum­mer and a huge turn­around in play­ers has seen a trio of popular for­mer Silk­men come to the New Lawn.

JON Parkin has signed from Fleet­wood, James Jen­nings from Mans­field and Sam Wedg­bury from Steve­nage.

ALSO in the wealthy Green Devils’ ranks is for­mer £5m striker Lee Hughes.

HUGHES and ‘The Beast’ have each found the net four times so far.

LEAGUE lead­ers Bar­net pro­vide Tues­day’s op­po­si­tion. They be­gan the week four points clear at the sum­mit.

THE Bees’ first sea­son back in non-league saw them fin­ish eighth but they’ve dom­i­nated top spot in the early stages.

BE­FORE tak­ing on Brain­tree on Tues­day Martin Allen’s men had kept seven clean sheets in 12 games and hit 30 goals.

THEY’VE in­flicted 5-0 de­feats on Ch­ester and Al­trin­cham and a 4-0 loss on Dart­ford.

LEE Cook (seven goals), John Akinde (six) and Charlie MacDon­ald head their scor­ing chart.

MACC did the dou­ble over the Bes last sea­son.
