Macclesfield Town may have a patched-up midfield as they face Hereford United at the Moss Rose.

Lee Bell missed the weekend trip to Rochdale which also saw Hamza Bencherif put out of action with a broken ankle.

With question marks over the fitness of Ricky Sappleton and Ross Draper, it could give Keith a selection headache ahead of the game.

Hereford won their first away game of the season last week with a 3-1 victory over Northampton, but the Silkmen will be hoping that they don`t continue in that vein as they look for what is becoming an increasingly rare home victory.

With a touch trip to Bury next on the list, this weekend`s game looks increasingly important if the Silkmen are to rejoin the mid-table pack and pull away from any new year relegation battle.
