No new faces for Macc

26 November 2010 11:00
Macclesfield boss Gary Simpson has failed in his attempt to bolster his squad with a loan signing ahead of the trip to Huddersfield in the FA Cup second round. With a number of players still absent through injury, Simpson was hoping to land a youngster on loan from a Premier League club but a move did not materialise before the 5pm deadline. Striker Ricky Sappleton remains sidelined with a knee problem and defender Shaun Brisley is out until January with a hip injury. Defender Carl Tremarco could play but will be sidelined for four months from next week when he will undergo an operation on his hip. On-loan Everton defender Aristote Nsiala is a doubt with a groin problem but midfielder Hamza Bencherif should be passed fit after starting from the bench with an ankle injury in Tuesday`s home defeat to Cheltenham.
