The Pitmen take are set to take a break from league action this evening as they travel to Leek Town in the Integro League Cup – subject to the pitch passing a 3pm inspection.
Our last visit to Harrison Park came all the way back in March 2008 when two first half goals from the home side proved to be enough to earn them a 2-1 victory.
Leek currently sit in seventh place in the Evo-Stik Division One South, having only tasted defeat twice in all competitions on their own pitch this season.
Manager Paul Casey was under no illusions that it would be a tough game for his new side – due mainly to the amount of players that are unavailable for the tie.
“It is going to be a tricky game for us and it has been made even more so by the injuries that we have in the squad at the moment.
“We do have Gavin Hurren available for us though if required, as he is fully recovered from an injury that had been troubling him.”
The manager is set to be without a number of players due to a variety of reasons. Danny Glover (hamstring), Jim Mutton (foot) and Simeon Maye (ankle) will all miss the game due to injury. Kyle Rowley meanwhile is cup tied while Tom Thorley will also miss out due to work commitments.
News of the outcome of the pitch inspection will be released as soon as it become available.
Parking at the ground is very limited, but there is plenty of room on the Leek to Macclesfield road (A523) that runs past the stadium or behind the Shell petrol station adjacent to the ground.
Parking bays are now marked on the northern side of this road – it is not recommended that you park on the southern side (the side closest to the ground), as the police may ask you to move.
