Hero Tomlinson strikes again: Match Review

Published Add your comment

The Macclesfield faithful have found a new hero in goal-scoring sensation Ben Tomlinson who grabbed two more goals to earn the home side three vital points.

Signed from Worksop in the closed season, the 21-year-old livewire has now grabbed five from six starts and was cheered from the pitch.

His opener came in the 36th minute when he pounced on a fluffed clearance from Cobblers' keeper Sam Walker before dancing to the edge of the box and blasting a low drive inside the near post.

However Macclesfield were caught on the break moments before half-time when Lewis Young, watched by his brother Ashley, picked out Marlon Jackson, who scored from 10 yards.

Macclesfield dominated the second half with George Donnelly seeing a rasping drive blocked by Kevin Langmeade before Walker tipped wide a curling shot from Tomlinson.

Tomlinson grabbed the vital second goal in the 83rd minute when he powered home a hip-high volley from the edge of the box.

Tomlinson then turned provider, releasing sub Colin Daniel, who converted with his first touch of the game in the 87th minute.
