Futcher in line for debut

Mon, 20 Feb 15:26:59 2012

Ben Futcher is available to make his Macclesfield debut against Northampton.

The 30-year-old centre-back joined on a three-month loan from Bury on Monday and could bolster a Silkmen side looking to avoid an eighth consecutive defeat.

Forward Ben Tomlinson (thigh) and midfielder Sam Wedgebury (hernia) were named among the substitutes by manager Gary Simpson for Saturday's game against Aldershot, despite failing late fitness tests, and could now be in line for a return to the starting XI alongside striker George Donnelly (calf).

Carl Tremarco will serve the first game of a three-match suspension after the full-back was sent off for a lunge on Shots forward Guy Madjo.

Midfield trio Dwayne Mattis (ankle), Ross Draper (broken metatarsal) and Lewis Chalmers (hernia) remain on the sidelines along with defender Paul Morgan (ankle).
