Macclesfield made it four wins in five games with a fine win over Aldershot.Ryan Lloyd gave the hosts a dream start by tapping home from six yards in the first minute after Scott Wilson burst down the right and weaved his way into the box before squaring it to the ex-Port Vale winger.Aldershot, who were aiming for a third consecutive away win, threatened to equalise via James Kellerman and Matt McClure as they grew into the game but both missed the target as the hosts clung on to their 1-0 lead.
Elliott Durrell put the result beyond doubt after 58 minutes with a fine strike from 20 yards and the victory takes the hosts up to fourth as the Shots drop to eighth.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsLive TextLine-upsMacclesfield1Jalal2Hodgkiss3Fitzpatrick11Lloyd5Pilkington4Lowe7DurrellSubstituted forBurgessat 75’minutes16Hancox18Whitehead23WhitakerSubstituted forKennedyat 85’minutes9WilsonSubstituted forMarshat 81’minutesSubstitutes8Marsh15Kennedy19Toure20Burgess22ArthurAldershot1Cole21FowlerSubstituted forFenelonat 54’minutes22Reynolds17KellermanBooked at 84mins12De HavillandSubstituted forEvansat 57’minutesBooked at 60mins3Alexander8Oyeleke18RoweSubstituted forRobertat 61’minutes19McDonnell9Rendell10McClureSubstitutes5Evans7Fenelon16Gallagher25Smith26RobertReferee:Andrew MillerAttendance:1,350Live TextPosted at Match ends, Macclesfield Town 2, Aldershot Town 0.Full TimePosted at 90′ Second Half ends, Macclesfield Town 2, Aldershot Town 0.SubstitutionPosted at 85′ Substitution, Macclesfield Town.
