Salford City make the short hour journey to the Moss Rose ground to take on Macclesfield Town this Saturday in the EFL League Two.

Salford sit 13th in the league whilst their opponents Macclesfield are second from bottom in 23rd.

The 2019/20 season has been one filled with mixed results for Salford. Positive performances in their previous league games against Crawley, Plymouth and Colchester will leave ‘The Ammies’ frustrated they only earned one point from those games.

Salford will be boosted that they are heading to Wembley April 5th, facing Portsmouth in the Trophy Final.

But despite the good feel amongst fans of a second trip to Wembley in under 12 months, they responded with a disappointing 2-1 defeat to Colchester last Saturday, leaving manager Graham Alexander puzzled by recent results.

“We’ve conceded from extremely little opportunities given to the opposition. We’ve had numerous opportunities and created so many chances and we haven’t took them, its deja vu for us,” said Alexander.

Alexander added, “We have this issue at the moment where we’re certainly not taking the points we deserve from our performances.”

Alexander will look to the Macclesfield game as a chance to get back to winning ways. Macclesfield are without a win in seven consecutive league games.

Mark Kennedy’s side are currently eight points above bottom placed Stevenage, and will be fortunate that only one team will be relegated after Bury’s expulsion from the Football League.



Macclesfield survived relegation from League Two last season, when ex-Arsenal player Sol Campbell managed them to finish just three points off relegation into non-league football.

But Campbell left after the end of last season and are going through a repeat of their form from last season.

Graham Alexander will not want a repeat of the reverse fixture, a dull 0-0 draw back in November.

If Salford fail to win on Saturday, a spot in the promotion play-off places will start to look virtually out of sight.
