MATCH PREVIEW: MACCLESFIELD V NEWCASTLE TOWN

Danny Whitaker’s side return to the Leasing.com Stadium for the first of five consecutive home fixtures this evening, as we entertain Newcastle Town.

The lads will be looking to extend their three point lead at the Northern Premier League West Division summit this evening and will be backed by another large and vociferous crown.
