Swindon Town vs. Macclesfield Town

County Ground, Swindon

Saturday 27 January 2007

3 pm Kick Off

UP NEXT: Macclesfield

Swindon Town welcome rejuvinated Macclesfield Town to the County Ground as Swindon look to close the gap on league leaders Walsall.

Vital Quotes:

'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 Team News:

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.

Player to watch: Sofiene Zaaboub

Zaaboub didn't have the best of games but will be looking to thrive off the big home support at the County Ground.

Macclesfield Town Team News:

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.

Player to watch: The Whole Team

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.

Match Facts & Stats

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.

Match Prediction:

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.
