Macc Town v Welling United (Sat, 3pm) Macc Town v Al­trin­cham (Tue, 7.45pm)

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORS -

DE­FEAT at home to Ch­ester on Satur­day means Welling re­main in rel­e­ga­tion trou­ble.

WELLING are one of three teams to have eight wins but nine draws keep them in 19th, ahead of South­port and Al­fre­ton.

JAKE Gal­lagher was sent off in the loss to Ch­ester, their fourth league de­feat in a row.

THEY’RE also with­out a win in six.

MACC strug­gled against the size of Welling, es­pe­cially in de­fend­ing set-pieces, but brought back a point from a goal­less draw in Novem­ber.

WINGS manager Jody Brown has added to his squad, sign­ing vet­eran mid­fielder Karl Duguid and An­thony Jef­frey, a striker who spent more than a decade as an Ar­se­nal young­ster.

THE 2012/13 Con­fer­ence South win­ners fin­ished 16th last sea­son, their first in the fifth tier for 13 years.

BUT they parted com­pany with Jamie Day in De­cem­ber. Af­ter a care­taker stint by Gal­lagher and Jamie Turner, for­mer Grays boss Brown took over.

LAST sea­son Macc won this fix­ture 2-1 but were de­feated on their away trip to Welling.

DE­SPITE play­ing on loan at Peter­bor­ough since Novem­ber 11-goal mid­fielder Harry Beau­ty­man is still far and away their lead­ing scorer.

TUES­DAY brings Macc’s chance to get one back at Al­trin­cham af­ter suf­fer­ing two 1-0 de­feats at Moss Lane.

LAST year’s play-off win­ners ended 2014 in 19th but have started to climb the ta­ble this year.

ALTY knocked Macc out of the FA Tro­phy in De­cem­ber, a win that fol­lowed a league suc­cess in Septem­ber, the first league derby in 17 years.

THE Robins were de­nied a chance to make it four straight wins on Satur­day, as their home game against Alder­shot was post­poned.

AHEAD of their trip to Dover on Satur­day, Lee Sin­nott’s men sit 15th in the ta­ble.

THEIR FA Tro­phy hopes were dashed with a de­feat at Bath last month. They’d seen off Macc and Kid­der­min­ster in the ear­lier rounds.

DAMIAN Reeves, who scored the only goal of the FA Tro­phy de­feat to Alty, is their lead­ing scorer with 14 in the league.
