Silkmen wait on Chalmers
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."
Torquay boss Paul Buckle will welcome Billy Kee back into his squad for the trip.
The 20-year-old striker missed the wins over Shrewsbury last Saturday and then Bury on Tuesday night with an ankle problem but has returned to training and will be involved.
However, Kee may have to settle for a place on the bench due to the impressive form of on-loan duo Jake Robinson and Gavin Tomlin.
Buckle has no new injury or suspension problems to worry about and is unlikely to make too many changes when his side go in search of their third successive victory.
On-loan midfielder Craig Stanley, who has been named the club's player of the month, will continue along with fellow loanees Robinson, Tomlin, Ronan Murray and Ben Pringle.
Branston steals point for Gulls
Torquay grabbed an injury-time equaliser to maintain their push for the play-offs in a 3-3 draw at Macclesfield.
Tailing throughout the game big centre-half Guy Branston headed home a long throw from centre-half partner Chris Robertson to beat Jose Veiga in the 91st minute.
Macclesfield had dominated the first half taking the lead in the 29th minute when Tyrone Barnett headed back across goal for his 11th of the season.
They doubled the lead in the 34th minute when Hamza Bencherif picked out Colin Daniel who converted with a 15-yard drive.
Torquay got back into the game in the 54th minute when Jake Robinson found the far corner from 12 yards. But Macclesfield extended their lead when Bencherif sent a bullet header inside the near post.
Torquay drew closer in the 74th minute when Daniel handled the ball inches inside the box allowing Robinson to convert from the spot.
They seemed to be holding out for a win when Branston got the equalising header with seconds running down.
