Last Time We Met Macclesfield Town

21 December 2018

Port Vale make the trip to Moss Rose on Saturday afternoon to face Sol Campbell's Macclesfield Town in Sky Bet League Two, but what happened when the two sides last met?

You have to go back to the 9th April 2012 to find when the clubs last faced each other, and it was the Valiants who secured all three points in the fourth tier. 

Micky Adams' men edged past the Silkmen, but it could've been a different outcome if George Donnelly had scored his penalty in the 75th minute instead of smashing his effort over the crossbar.

Louis Dodds and Tom Pope both sent headers onto the woodwork in a first half in which Vale dominated, but the hosts were unable to find the breakthrough.

It was Adam Yates who eventually popped up with the only goal of the afternoon at Vale Park, with the defender reacting first to a loose ball after Pope's initial effort cannoned off the post eight minutes from time.

Vale and Macclesfield have only met on 11 occasions in their history, and it's the Valiants who have a better record with six wins, one draw and four defeats.
