Newport vs Macclesfield (By: MKFootball)
Although the focus is fully on Champions league today with no doubt really interesting matches, I believe there is a value elsewhere.Newport is hosting Macclesfield in a match from the 11th round of the English League Two.Whats interesting? Newport are a Wales team making it too hard for every team coming from England on away.They are extremely tough home team that this year has a lot of ambitions.Two seasons ago they made a miracle winning most of their final matches to escape the relegation and now they are progressing since then.With current from 7-1-2 WDL they are entering with a lot of confidence, winning 4 games at home and losing only one.This is a great statistics knowing that teams in this league are almost equal and it is too hard to make some fascinating records.
Mark O'Brien suffered a hamstring and he misses out with Robbie Willmot who got suspended. Andrew Crofts and Matty Dolan remain out.
Great news for Newport is that striker Jamille Mat will start for the hosts.He scored a brace in their last two games so he is likely to be the main striker again.
Macclesfield are really good team.Last year their won promotion in a pretty easy manner, smashing almost all of their main enemies for the first place.They are currently at the bottom of the table but they play an organised and intelligent football.They have a lot of youngsters thirsty for big games to prove themselves.I found Macclesfield a tough but too inexperienced and mostly too nervous team.They play 50/50 first half and in the second half suddenly everything got ruined.Most of their goals conceded came from second half.5 games, 12 goals conceded, this is too much if you have ambitions to take something from a tough and physically well prepared Wales team.
Main player Danny Whittaker was forced off due to receiving a heavy tackle, injuring him hard. Michael Rose completes a three-game ban for his red card at Morecambe last month.
