So finally my first home league game of the season after watching macc loose to leicester and crewe earlier in the season. Macc started well look dangerous down the right wing thanks to Izak Reid and Emile Sinclair both giving Lincoln’s star player Sergio Torres a lot of trouble. Lincoln were the first side really to pose a threat due to sloppy defending from Nat Brown to play some shit Lincoln player through who looked like he may have managed to neatly slot the ball into the bottom corner but thanks to a great save by Johnny Brain it went out for a corner. Macclesfield then continued to threaten throughout the first half and dominated in possession not letting Lincoln have any of the ball. Colin Daniel saw an opportunity to score when the Lincoln keeper was off his line narrowly missing the far post. Just before half time John Rooney also took a long range chance and hit the cross bar. Things looked promising for macc as the half time whistle blew. The second half started slow but once again macc looked like the better side before Johnny Brain conceded a penalty. It obviously wasn’t watching the highlights this morning you can clearly see Johnny take the ball before he took out the player. Rene Howe easily took at scored slotting it straight down the middle.This was then followed by a serious of ridiculous yellow cards given by the referee one in particular given to Lee Bell. Keith brought on a few changes towards the end taking of the dire Ben Wright and Emile Sinclair for Matt Tipton and Ricky Sappleton. The later of the two instantly making an impact and came very close to equalising if it wasn’t for a superb save by the Lincoln keeper. But even this wasn’t enough and once again the referee has ruined the game for the paying fans. But, oh well next stop Cheltenham away.
