Silkmen Suffer Bout of Travel Sickness as Kay Sees Red Late On

Article excerpt

MACCLESFIELD's fine form came to a halt as they lost 3-2 away to Salisbury in the Skrill Premier.

The Silkmen went into Saturday's game eight unbeaten but lost Peter Winn and Carl Martin to injury inside 28 minutes before falling behind on the stroke of half-time.

In time added on for the injuries, Scott Boden was brought down and Connor Jennings drew Macc level from the penalty spot and the Silkmen took a 55th-minute lead through Paul Turnbull.
