So to Crewe and an all Cheshire contest that raises more than the customary grin. Can the Crazy gang cast the spear of destiny into the heart of carpet football, or will Darios Dazzlers trample on Simmo`s mantra of who dares wins.

Ahhhhh into the Gresty Coliseum goes the Macc attack this glorious evening. It could be three to them or three to us, but football me thinks will be in the winner this night. As to how many will venture from the Champions league armchairs and leave the TV tins of ale for football in the flesh? Well that is a question a million dollars away from the Silkmen`s crazy gang.

Forget bravado come see the aficionados of – well we never no quite what – but one thing has to be said they will never accept their lot.

Macclesfield Team News:

Although there could be a reshuffle if Tramarco sits the game out, Simmo will continuue with his spear with Colin Daniels dropping back to left back and a return for a class act.
