Match Preview

Chalmers back for Macc Macclesfield will be boosted by the return of Lewis Chalmers for their Boxing Day clash with Rotherham. Chalmers has not played since the Silkmen's 3-0 FA Cup first-round victory over East Thurrock on November 12 due to a stomach problem. However, he is set to return when the Millers come to town, telling the club's official website: "I have been out for a while so I can't wait to get back." Elliot Hewitt continues to step up his rehabilitation from a groin injury but Monday's clash looks set to come too soon. John Grant (calf), Greg Daniel (knee), Ben Tomlinson (ankle) and Scott Kay (thigh) remain sidelined. Macc have not won in their last six npower League Two encounters, of which they have lost four. Rotherham manager Andy Scott could pick an unchanged line-up. The Millers beat AFC Wimbledon at Don Valley last week to extend their recent run of good form and Scott looks set to keep faith with the same players. On-loan defender Guy Branston could be involved again, though, after missing the last two games with a foot injury as he has stepped up his training this week but Scott may choose not to disrupt the defensive pairing of Johnny Mullins and Michael Raynes. Luke Foster underwent surgery on a cruciate ligament injury on Wednesday to repair the problem that will keep him out for the rest of the season. Ryan Cresswell, Gareth Evans (both ankle) and Mark Bradley (shoulder) continue to miss out but are targeting returns in the new year. The game at Moss Ross will be the Millers' first outing on December 26 since 2008 after recent winters have curtailed their festive programme.

Match Report

Macc draw blank again Shot-shy Macclesfield saw their npower League Two goal drought stretch to three matches with a goalless draw against Rotherham at the Moss Rose. The Silkmen have now scored just two goals in seven league games and must be grateful to their strong defence and resolute keeper Jose Veiga. The game came alive in the 16th minute when Jon Harley saw a dipping 40-yard volley tipped over the bar by Veiga. Veiga again proved his worth in the 25th minute when he threw himself to the right to clutch onto a powerful Alex Revell drive. Colin Daniel produced Macc's first shot on target in the 41st minute, but his fierce shot from 25 yards was punched clear by Conrad Logan. Three minutes after the break the athletic Veiga brilliantly plucked a Lewis Grabban header out of thin air. Immediately at the other end, George Donnelly had a shot blocked on the six yard line by Johnny Mullins. Macc wasted the best chance of the game in the 74th minute when Donnelly sent a free header from six yards tamely wide. Millers sub Brett Williams nearly won the game in the 89th minute when his rifled 20-yard effort cannoned back off the crossbar.
