Al­bion mid­fielder Dar­ren Carter and Mar­cus Kelly and their at­tack­ing in­tent was re­warded in the 77th minute.

Ref­eree John Busby awarded the hosts with a ques­tion­able free kick which Rob Sin­clair whipped into the penalty area. The ball some­how made its way to Jen­nings at the back post to hit the ball past Sh­wan Jalal and draw the scores level.

Both teams traded blows for the fi­nal stages of the game look­ing for a cru­cial three points. Un­for­tu­nately for Askey’s men, that win­ner went to the league lead­ers.

Jen­nings, who was a con­stant thorn in the Silk­men’s side, whipped in a cross that was met by cen­tre-back Clough at the back post.

Af­ter a small scram­ble with Jalal, the de­fender man­aged to get the ball past the line to give his side all three points.

Macc will now des­per­ately hope to get back to win­ning ways when they travel to Torquay in the FA Tro­phy this week­end.

Jalal, Halls, Byrne, Pilk­ing­ton, Lewis ( Turn­bull), Hol­royd (Suther­land), Samp­son, Rowe, White­head (Sty­che), Fitz­patrick, Whi­taker. Subs not used: Brana­gan, Di­agne
