History of the Macclesfield Town v Northampton Town fixture

Northampton travel to take on Macclesfield Town at Moss Rose on Saturday afternoon, expecting to continue a remarkable return in this fixture. The Cobblers have come away as the winners on 4 of the 5 previous games.

The last time the two teams met at Macclesfield was just over four years ago, in September 2005, as the visitors ran out cosy 1 - 4 winners in a League Two match.
