Elliott Durrell’s late goal sent Macclesfield top of the National League with victory at struggling Guiseley.John Rooney could have given Guiseley a third-minute lead but the hosts fell behind after a quarter of an hour when Danny Whitaker struck for the Silkmen.Scott Wilson’s shot cannoned back off the post and the ball fell to Whitaker, who marked his 400th appearance for the club by firing in the rebound.
Guiseley hit back three minutes before the break when debutant Mike Fondop chipped the ball over Macclesfield keeper Shwan Jalal.Jalal was called into action to deny Rooney shortly after the break before Mitch Hancox headed just wide for the visitors moments later.Danny Whitehead also wasted a headed chance before Durrell fired home the winner with just four minutes remaining.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsLive TextLine-upsGuiseley1Maxted2Brown25Atkinson8Hatfield29Freestone5Palmer10Rooney28Lenighan11MolyneuxBooked at 57minsSubstituted forThompsonat 78’minutes19OdejayiSubstituted forHaworthat 67’minutes30Fondop-TalomSubstitutes4Wesolowski6Lawlor9Thompson18Mulhern31HaworthMacclesfield1Jalal2Hodgkiss4Lowe7DurrellSubstituted forKennedyat 88’minutes3Fitzpatrick5Pilkington18Whitehead23Whitaker11Lloyd9WilsonSubstituted forMarshat 78’minutes16HancoxSubstituted forArthurat 63’minutesSubstitutes8Marsh12Ramsbottom15Kennedy20Burgess22ArthurReferee:Joseph JohnsonAttendance:812Live TextPosted at Match ends, Guiseley 1, Macclesfield Town 2.Full TimePosted at 90′ Second Half ends, Guiseley 1, Macclesfield Town 2.SubstitutionPosted at 88′ Substitution, Macclesfield Town.
