Man of the Match: Northampton Town (Home)

Saturday saw a day that Silkmen supporters will never forget as our beloved blues picked up our first three points of the season against Carlisle United. Three days later, it was a day that we will want to soon forget as Northampton Town claimed an emphatic 5-0 victory on a rainy night in Macclesfield. Before we do erase those 90 minutes from our mind, which Silkmen player do you feel could hold their head up high in front of their loyal fans?
