MATCH PREVIEW: Macc Town v Forest Green Rovers (Sat, 3pm) Macc Town v Barnet (Tue, 7.45pm)
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.
