As Macc cruise to Gateshead win

Macclesfield Express - - TVWEEK -

John Askey’s side were still in con­trol though and they nearly made it 3-0 when McCombe headed a free-kick into the path of Whi­taker who just missed the tar­get with his low drive.

Mac­cles­field were still look­ing dan­ger­ous as they headed to­wards the fi­nal ten min­utes with Samp­son hav­ing a curl­ing ef­fort well saved by Rus­sell.

It looked like they would have to set­tle for a 2-0 vic­tory but then Sty­che en­sured he took home the match ball when he com­pleted his hat-trick late on.

The for­ward latched on to a knock­down from Di­agne and smashed home from the edge of the box with a stun­ning fin­ish.

Mo­ments later the hat-trick hero was re­placed by Chris Suther­land, re­ceiv­ing a warm re­cep­tion from the trav­el­ling Mac­cles­field fans.

Di­agne had a late free-kick com­fort­ably saved, but 3-0 was enough to give the Silk­men a su­perb away win.
