MATCH PRE­VIEW: South­port v Macc Town (Sat, 3pm)

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORS -

UN­LESS they beat Eastleigh in their Tues­day-night fix­ture South­port will host Macc this week­end with­out a win on six matches.

A draw and three de­feats – the most re­cent a 4-2 loss at fel­low strug­glers Al­fre­ton – leaves them perched un­com­fort­ably above the drop-zone.

THE two teams met at the Moss Rose in Septem­ber, when two LukeWater­fall goals – with a Paul Turn­bull strike in­be­tween – saw Macc seal the points by half-time.
