MATCH PREVIEW: MACCLESFIELD V BOOTLE

01 Oct 2022 | Match Preview

Danny Whitaker’s side return to the Leasing.com Stadium for the second time this week later today, as we welcome Bootle ahead of our latest Northern Premier League West Division fixture.

After enjoying a scintillating run of form, The Silkmen will be looking to extend their five-point lead at the top of the division and continue their devastating record of scoring fifteen goals in the last three outings.

Our visitors come into the game residing in ninth position, having accumulated eleven points from their opening seven contests.

Simon Wills rescued a point for The Bucks on Tuesday evening, as his 77th minute strike cancelled out Tom Moore’s 43rd minute opener at Runcorn Linnets.
