What a great result, we didn't let Macc play, never gave them chance to start passing the ball, and harried them very time they had possession.  A brilliant performance, the weak link for me was Aswad whose indecisive actions on the ball and dodgy passes back to McKeown gave me heart failure.
I thought Mackreth was excellent and never stopping running, Toto similarly excellent but definite MOM was Pearson, absolutely imperious in defence and stifled so many of their attacks before they started.
Fantastic result, shocking drive home, hope all travelling fans get home safe.... And let's hope this run continues!

Back home, not a bad performance at all from town considering the elements, quality (wet) support in our end , Pearson MOM solid, anyone know what the commotion was in the Macc end near the tunnel was in the second half?

I think someone threw a coin on the pitch according to macc fans.

Not the best game but what a result. Very good 3 points against a team unbeaten at home. Shame Macreth didn't slot one home near the end. Flippin freezing but well worth the trip.

Before anyone says anything about me having a go at the club blah blah:- for years we have been messing up away games during the actual game. Now we either don't bother turning up on time or don't bother coming back. Is Jack Johnson behind this too?

Got back about an hour ago to Market Rasen. Dad and I came back via Stockport and M62. It seems as thought a few Town fans weren't so fortunate and are stuck in snow near Chesterfield. Huge credit to all the Town fans who stood in the pouring rain today and cheered on the team. Yet another superb away following.

First half: I thought Town started the game fairly brightly albeit causing little danger. The goal, from what I could see of it, came from neat work between LJL and Arnold. Arnold's shot forced Taylor into a save but he could only parry and Mackreth was able to tap into the net. After we took the lead Macclesfield came forward with a lot of intent. Their attacks consistently orchestrated by Danny Whitaker were threatening to begin with but rarely forced a save from McKeown. Town were a little frustrating. Their were opportunities where players such as Mackreth could go forward but didn't as they were quite happy to contain play instead. Towards the end of the first half, the Town midfield was starting to find themselves outnumbered and second to the majority of balls.

Second half: By the start of the last 45 minutes the rain had turned heavy and a little wintry. Disley, who would go on to putting in one of his best performances so far this season, held the midfield well. Arnold and Mackreth started to penetrate both wings and it brought them joy on several occasions. When Macclesfield did create chances, either in open play or from set pieces, both Toto and Pearson were able to tidy up effectively. One particular highlight was when Toto lost the ball midway into the Town half and with the striker (Fairhurst?) bearing down on McKeown's goal, he was able to slide in from behind and win the ball. With about 20 minutes to go, Hurst replaced Pittman with Clay. Town, now playing a 4-3-3 formation, were able to press from midfield. Disley dropped a little deeper behind Clay and Brown in centre midfield and Whitaker enjoyed fair less time on the ball. The one clear chance to extend the lead to 2-0, for me, was when LJL held the ball up brilliantly on the left side of the Macclesfield penalty before turning and played across the six-yard area but Mackreth couldn't get close enough to stab past Taylor.

Overall it was a fantastic victory and a really smart move from Hurst to go 4-3-3. I feel we missed Magnay at right-back. Parslow did OK but hasn't got the ability of Magnay going forward. Onwards to the Lincoln game on Sunday.


We've got Jason Pearcey, number one, we've got the best team in the land...

I must have been got at by the cold as I thought it was a poor game from both sides but a great result.

Anyone who thought Arnold had a good game must be a relative I thought he was woeful, his corners and fee kicks were shockingly bad, Mackreth had a better game than recent but still didn't do much apart from the goal, although speaking to some Macc fans after the game it seems it might have been an own goal.
