Macclesfield Town 1 vs Tranmere Rovers 2 - by Joshua Woolley

Tranmere Took the lead against a inform Macclesfield side when a tackle by Jay Harris sent through James Norwood who neatly played a quick one two with Lois Maynard then curled it to the far right of the goal but not right enough because it is tipped wide by the keeper Shwan Jalal . From the resulting corner number 24 Steve McNulty  headed in from the penalty spot after an Adam Mekki corner is met by his the big centre half .

In the 15th minute Jay Harris dinked the ball over the Macclesfield defence which sent James Norwood through one on one with Shwan  Jalal who  came to meet the ball but James Norwood lobbed it over his head but sadly it went on the roof of the net. In first half added time Kristian Dennis equalises with a header from a right hand side cross 30 yards out  . Seconds the players went inside to have a team talk , Boos rang around the Tranmere end when the officials went inside because of their poor performance.

At the interval one change was made and experienced Gary Taylor - Fletcher gave way for 29 Ben Tomlinson who is yet to score for us .  A 77th minute corner from Adam Mekki led to a Michael Ihiekwe header to make it 2-1 this sent the traveling fans into the chant of ' sue white army'  . A red card is given to Paul Lewis for simulation which is his second book able offence this means he will miss out on Chester away, the return fixture against Tranmere and Halifax at home  .The attendance was 3037 with 934 travelling fans .

Home Support : 7/10 the Silk Men had parts where there was no atmosphere but average gate for a non league side 

Away Support : 9/10 A great Boxing Day turnout by the SWA with non stop atmosphere.

Match Rating : 5/10 The match was blighted by  poor decision making from the officials with too many cards given .

Ground : 4/10 Moss Road is a non league ground with a non league attendance .

Day as a whole : 10/10 It is always fun a away day especially with the best fans in the world the thing is with Tranmere you can never predict a score but you can always predict a great away atmosphere
