Duo return for Macc

15 November 2010 12:30
Macclesfield boss Gary Simpson is boosted by the return of Ross Draper and Vinny Mukendi for the FA Cup first-round replay at Southend. Both players collected their fifth bookings of the season in the original 2-2 draw at Moss Rose and served one-match bans during Saturday`s 2-0 home win over Aldershot. Striker Ricky Sappleton and midfielder Richard Butcher are out with knee injuries and defender Shaun Brisley remains sidelined until January with a hip injury. Yet Simpson`s men are in buoyant mood and Saturday`s win against the Shots was their fourth successive home victory in the league, encouraging hopes of a play-off push. Simpson said: "We`ve said all season that we want to start with 50 points and then look from there."
