MATCH PREVIEW: MACCLESFIELD V BAMBER BRIDGE

08 Oct 2022 | Match Preview

The Silkmen return to the Leasing.com Stadium this afternoon, in order to contest our Isuzu FA Trophy Third Qualifying Round tie against Bamber Bridge.

Danny Whitaker’s side will be looking to bounce back from last week’s home league defeat against Bootle and come up against a side a league above them in what promises to be an enthralling contest.

Our visitors currently reside in eleventh place in the Northern Premier League, having accumulated sixteen points from their opening eleven games.

They come into the game on the back of a one-all draw at Morpeth Town on Tuesday evening.

TEAM NEWS

Dan Cowan is the only injury concern, as he continues to recover from a knee injury.
