Match Preview

Poke a hole in Gas squad Bristol Rovers will have to do without first-choice goalkeeper Michael Poke for their npower League Two clash with Macclesfield. Poke has not featured for the Pirates since a goalless draw with Oxford on February 18 after twisting his ankle and looks set to spend another two weeks on the sidelines. Otherwise, manager Mark McGhee has no new injury or suspension worries ahead of the visit of the struggling Silkmen. Adam Virgo and Wayne Brown remain long-term casualties for the Memorial Stadium outfit with respective knee ligament and ankle injuries, and despite Gary Sawyer (hamstring) and Aaron Downes (knee cartilage) also being ruled out, McGhee has the majority of his squad available. Striker Scott McGleish joined Barnet on a month-long loan deal on Thursday and is therefore unavailable. Carl Tremarco is set to return to the Macclesfield squad. The left-back served the final game of a three-match suspension when the Silkmen snatched a last-gasp 1-1 draw against fellow strugglers Plymouth in midweek. Sheffield Wednesday loanee Richard O'Donnell is set to continue between the between the posts with Jose Veiga (thigh) still absent, although veteran goalkeeper Steve Collis could come come through a late fitness test on a shoulder injury to provide cover on the bench. Midfielder Tony Diagne (hamstring) and full-back Elliott Hewitt (leg) will also be assessed before kick-off. Ross Draper and Lewis Chalmers remain on the sidelines as they nurse a broken metatarsal and a hernia problem respectively, while fellow midfielder Dwayne Mattis is out with an ankle complaint alongside centre-back Paul Morgan.

Match Report

Rovers and Silkmen in stalemate Two fine second-half saves from Richard O'Donnell earned Macclesfield a battling point from a goalless draw away to Bristol Rovers. The on-loan Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper parried a 70th-minute drive from Mustapha Carayol and did even better to divert a fierce Lee Brown shot for a corner five minutes from time. Macclesfield rarely threatened but striker George Donnelly did had a shot deflected narrowly wide after 58 minutes. Rovers dominated possession in the first half but found it hard to penetrate a well-organised visiting defence. Carayol sent an early shot wide from 30 yards, Matt Lund had a free-kick saved and Matt Harrold just failed to connect with a 42nd-minute cross from Brown. Relegation-threatened Macclesfield failed to force a single save from Scott Bevan in the first half and operated with Donnelly as a lone striker.
