New boy Tomi guns down Tigers
TOMI Adeloye announced his arrival with a brace as Macclesfield came from behind against Hyde to earn a quarter-final against Crewe.
New recruit Adeloye netted twice, either side of Malachi Lavelle-Moore’s goal, to see the Silkmen through last Tuesday evening.
Hyde fielded four academy graduates while Macc boss John Askey named just one substitute, youth coach Byron Jenkins. Goalkeeper Ritchie Branagan (above) captained the Silkmen side.
Adeloye, fresh from signing on loan from Stoke City, partnered Matthew Barnes- Homer in attack.
In a topsy-turvy match Macc cancelled outHyde’s early advantage but after going ahead were pegged back, Adeloye grabbing the winner in extra-time.
It was the hosts from Conference North that toook the lead, Connor Hughes scoring after 17 minutes.
But Macc levelled before half-time, Adeloye netting his first after rounding Tigers keeper Ashley Timms.
Lavelle-Moore looked to have won the match for the visitors, scoring the second goal but Hyde equalised from the penalty spot, Tom Bentham scoring to send the match to extra time.
In the first period of extra-time Adeloye pounced to net his second and Macc’s third of the night, ensuring that they’ll play host to Crewe – who overcame 1874 Northwich – at the quarter-final stage on February 24.
