Macclesfield are facing the renewed threat of relegation as the English Football League considers an appeal against their points deduction.
Football League chairman Rick Parry is weighing up the option of contesting Macclesfield's two-points deduction for breaches of regulations, after complaints from a number of League Two clubs.
Macclesfield avoided relegation from the fourth tier by just one point after an independent disciplinary commission ruled last month they should be docked two points over non-payments of wages.
The ruling ensured Stevenage, bottom of the league, will be relegated to the National League but rival clubs have insisted the punishment was too lenient.
The EFL is now in talks over whether to appeal against the decision, leaving Macclesfield facing a nervous wait to discover if they receive heavier sanctions.
Macclesfield were also fined £20,000 by the panel and given an additional four-point penalty which is suspended and carried into the next season.
That was the third time this season they were deducted points, but it now appears likely they could be facing another legal dispute.
League Two's season was curtailed last month after the 24 clubs unanimously agreed to decide the campaign by using the points-per-game method.
