Boss wary of Macclesfield threat
TOWN boss Mark Cooper has vowed to ‘respect’ non-league Macclesfield when the teams meet in the FA Cup first round next month.
The teams have been paired together in a rematch of last season’s fixture at the same stage, which the Silkmen won 2-0.
Following yesterday’s draw at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London, Cooper talked up the threat of the Conference Premier outfit.
He said: “I’d prefer it to have been a home draw, going away to a non-league club is never easy. If you’re not at it then you can get found out and it happens every year.
“Macclesfield knocked Cardiff out as well as Swindon last year so we will give the game the respect it deserves.
“Make no mistake about it, it will be a very tough game and I’ll be making my players fully aware of that.”
The tie will take place on the weekend of November 9-10.
