once again the referee was unmoved.
Mackreth was involved again during the closing stages when he broke clear of the Forest Green defence.
He couldn’t make the opportunity count though as he fired into the side netting.
That turned out to be the last chance of the game, with Macc con- demned to a narrow 1-0 home defeat.
The loss has seen the Silkmen drop to 11th place in the table ahead of this weekend’s trip to Aldershot Town.
