Macc wait on Chalmers

18 March 2011 12:30
Macclesfield boss Gary Simpson will assess the fitness of midfielder Lewis Chalmers ahead of the home clash with Torquay. Chalmers could again be sidelined with a groin strain that kept him out of Tuesday`s 1-1 draw at home to Lincoln. Defender Shaun Brisley also has a groin strain and will miss out but striker Vinny Mukendi is expected to be available after a recent knee injury. However, Simon Yeo remains sidelined with a similar complaint as the Silkmen bid to put further daylight between themselves and the relegation places. Simpson`s men lie in 18th place, eight points above the drop zone and the Moss Rose chief is confident his side are edging towards safety. He said: "I'm glad we got a point against Lincoln, but it should have been all three."
