County Ground, Swindon
Saturday 27 January 2007
3 pm Kick Off
Swindon Town welcome rejuvinated Macclesfield Town to the County Ground as Swindon look to close the gap on league leaders Walsall.
'Paul Ince has worked very hard there, got across his beliefs and brought in a couple of key players on loan.
'He's got a very strong big side that can cause a lot of concern in the box.
'They recently beat Hereford 3-0 and you have to give them the respect they merit.'
Swindon Town Manager Paul Sturrock
Swindon Town will be without Peter Brezovan, Andy Caton, Paul Evans and Jamie Vincent, who are all recovering from injuries. Blair Sturrock could face a late fitness test after recovering from a virus. Paul Sturrock is likely to name an unchanged side to the one that beat Boston United last weekend 3-1.
Zaaboub didn't have the best of games but will be looking to thrive off the big home support at the County Ground.
Macclesfield who sat bottom of the divison most the season have seen a resurgence since naming former Swindon Town midfielder Paul Ince as manager. Macclesfield's win last week saw the League 2 strugglers climb out of the relegation zone for the first time this season. Robbie Doyle will go straight into the side after signing a loan deal until the end of the season. Jordan Hadfield returns to Paul Ince's side after completing a two match ban. Defender Rob Scott will face a late fitness test due to a calf problem.
Macclesfield are flying now under Paul Ince and now look as if they could comfortably finish mid-table if not higher. Some Macclesfield Fans are already noting the club is 12 points from the playoffs.
Goals from John Murphy and Danny Swailes gave the then bottom Macclesifled Town a 2-1 win over Swindon Town on 23rd December 2006. Lee Peacock scored Swindon's goal on the 64th minute in an otherwise dissapointing match for Swindon.
Swindon have been fantastic at home this season and many of the crowd are finally starting to believe, 'WE ARE GOING UP'. Macclesfield's good run has to end eventually however I think both teams would be happy with a draw.
