History of the Macclesfield Town v Mansfield Town fixture

Mansfield Town face a trip to Macclesfield Town at Moss Rose on Saturday afternoon, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 8 games played, Stags have recorded 2 wins, and Macclesfield have come away with 4 victories.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in September 2005, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a League Two match.

Recent respective form guides

Macclesfield Town's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While Silkmen have scored 8, a worringly large 13 have been leaked at the other end.

Mansfield Town's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. Stags have conceded 9 goals in these games, and only hit 3 in reply.

Macclesfield find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 15 games have yielded only 5 points. Mansfield Town see themselves just below half way in the Coca-Cola League Two, showing a record of 18 points from their 15 games played so far,
