Man of the Match: Cheltenham Town (Away)

Macclesfield Town suffered a disappointing defeat in Gloucestershire, as the Robins of Cheltenham Town made a second half comeback to win 3-2 in what was a crucial fixture at the foot of the League 2 table. First half strikes from Michael Rose and Scott Wilson had the Robins flapping, however the turning point of the game happened in the 20th minute, as Silkmen defender Nathan Cameron was shown a straight red card and left the Cheshire club to fight on for the rest of the game with only ten men. Despite it being a disappointing afternoon at the Jonny-Rocks stadium, who was your Silkmen Man of the Match?

Update following Oldham Athletic (Home)

Goals from Harry Smith and Scott Wilson saw the Silkmen come from behind to beat Oldham Athletic 2-1 at the Moss Rose. There were impressive displays from those wearing our beloved blue and white shirts, with honourable mentions going to Jared Hodgkiss, Tyrone Marsh and Miles Welch-Hayes. However, the majority of The Star Lane End members thought that their Man of the Match, following a vital strike at the end of the first half and for his all round display, was Silkmen forward Harry Smith. Well done Harry and keep on scoring those all important goals as we strive to maintain our Football League status!
