To Macc’s bid

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH -

2-0 in the FA Tro­phy. Goals from Danny Whi­taker and Kris­tian Den­nis helped the Silk­men progress to the last 16 of the com­pe­ti­tion.

Whi­taker opened the scor­ing on 20 min­utes when his long-range ef­fort flew into the top cor­ner to put his team in front.

They car­ried that lead into the se­cond half, and were given a golden chance to dou­ble the score when Danny White­head was fouled in the penalty area.

That al­lowed Den­nis to step up and smash the spot-kick into the back of the net to make it 2-0 to the hosts.

That’s how the match fin­ished, with Mac­cles- field run­ning out com­fort­able win­ners and set­ting up a trip to Torquay United.

The game with Torquay takes place on Satur­day 6 Feb, with a place in the quar­ter-fi­nals up for grabs.

Torquay have al­ready beaten Macc once this sea­son, and first team coach By­ron Jenk­ins is hop­ing for re­venge on this oc­ca­sion.

“We have got Torquay next and we will see what we can do there, we shouldn’t be fear­ful of them, it is a game that we can win,” he said.

“I thought we were un­lucky the last time we played them and we will be look­ing to get our own back.

“We were re­ally pleased with the per­for­mance against Truro, they were up for it and they were a tough op­po­si­tion and any­thing can hap­pen in the cup.

“We did what we had to do and got the re­sult and now we are through to the next round, so it’s job done from our point of view.”
