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.

“It has been a col­lec­tive ap­proach and been re­warded with a vol­ume of first-class com­ments re­ceived from many quar­ters of the game.” MACC should be well rested af­ter last Satur­day’s match at Brain­tree was post­poned and book­ies ex­pect their fresh legs to do them some good as they’re in­stalled as 2/5 (BetVic­tor) for three points this week­end.

Welling are a 6/1 shot with bet365 to in­flict what would be a sec­ond home de­feat on the hosts.

Stan James of­fer 19/5 about the Wings frus­trat­ing John Askey’s troops to earn a point.

The pair were in­sep­a­ra­ble in the re­verse fix­ture back in Novem­ber and this clash is 12/1 with Win­ to match that one by fin­ish­ing goal­less.
