Torquay v Macclesfield (Satur­day, 5.15pm)

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH -

MACCLESFIELD need to de­feat Torquay if they are to have any chance of fin­ish­ing in the play-offs.

IF For­est Green fail to win at home to Dover, victory for Macc would see them leapfrog Rovers in the ta­ble.

FOURTH-PLACED Eastleigh only need a point though against Kid­der­smin­ster to en­sure that they fin­ish above Macclesfield in the ta­ble.

THE Silk­men were vic­to­ri­ous when they went up against Torquay in the re­verse fix­ture ear­lier this sea­son, win­ning 1-0 in Novem­ber.

DANNY Whi­taker’s sec­ond half strike was enough to give John Askey’s side the victory.

THE Gulls cur­rently sit 12th in the Con­fer­ence ta­ble and could climb one place with a win on Satur­day.

THEY head into the match in good form, af­ter win­ning their last three league matches in a row, keep­ing three suc­ces­sive clean sheets in that time.

RYAN Bow­man is their lead­ing scorer so far this sea­son, hav­ing net­ted 13 times in the league.

TORQUAY won when they last hosted Macc at Plain­moor back in 2011, cruis­ing to a 3-0 victory.
