Since The Glovers were promoted only two teams have put four past us in the league, and one of those was Macclesfield Town back in August 2003. The Silkmen are also the only side to come to Huish Park this season and take away three points. Riding high in the form table and currently fifth in the table that matters, the trip to Moss Rose will be a tough welcome back to the realities of the league campaign after the distractions of the F.A. Cup.
Yeovil Town will be without Paul Terry (and long-term injury Adam Lockwood) and it must be odds on that Kevin Amankwaah, signed on loan on Thursday to provide cover at the back, will be thrown straight in to start earning his corn. Michael Rose came through his substitute appearance at The Valley without reaction on his return from injury, and is available. With Bartosz Tarachulski suspended for a match for accumulating five bookings we expect Arron Davies to make his first start for the club since signing in December, all his previous nine appearances having been as substitute.
For Macclesfield defender Michael Welch is, like Tarachulski, serving a one match ban for five bookings. David Morley is likely to come in to replace him, with Maccy sticking with their three centre-backs system. Midfielder Mark Boyd is in contention after arriving on loan from Gretna F.C., but will probably have to be satisfied with a position on the bench. Macclesfield's danger man is Jon Parkin, with 17 goals in the league, one behind Yeovil's Phil Jevons, and 21 in all competitions, one ahead of Jevo. Parkin has also committed substantially more fouls than any other player in League Two, needing only one more for his ton, but possibly only because he stays on the field longer than Cortez Belle.
