Mac­cles­field v Dover (Satur­day, 3pm)

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH -

DOVER were formed 33 years ago in 1983 and play their home matches at the 5,745 ca­pac­ity Crab­bie Ath­letic Ground

THEY have been in the Na­tional League since earn­ing pro­mo­tion in 2014 and fin­ished in eighth place last sea­son

FOR­MER West Ham United player Chris Kin­n­ear has been man­ager of the club since Jan­uary 2013

THE Whites are strong con­tenders for pro­mo­tion this sea­son, and were sit­ting in fifth place in the league ta­ble ahead of the mid­week fix­tures

DOVER have strug­gled for con­sis­tency in re­cent weeks though, win­ning four and los­ing four of their last eight games

THEY picked up an em­phatic vic­tory in their last match, beat­ing Gateshead 4-0 to hand them their first de­feat since De­cem­ber

RICKY Miller is the team’s lead­ing scorer so far this sea­son, scor­ing 14 goals dur­ing the league cam­paign

DOVER for­ward Stefan Payne had a very brief spell at Mac­cles­field in 2013, mak­ing just one ap­pear­ance for the club

THE two teams have al­ready met once this sea­son, with Dover pick­ing up a 2-1 home vic­tory back in Oc­to­ber

GOALS from Payne and Nicky Deverdics were enough for the hosts de­spite a strike from Danny White­head

THE Silk­men were vic­to­ri­ous when they last hosted Dover at the Moss Rose though, run­ning out 1-0 win­ners

PAUL Lewis, right, got the only goal of the game in Oc­to­ber 2014

VIC­TORY for Mac­cles­field could see them climb as high as sixth in the ta­ble if other re­sults go their way
