Macclesfield have appointed Brian Horton as their new manager until the end of the season.

The Silkmen sacked Gary Simpson on Sunday following the weekend defeat to Dagenham and a winless run of 14 games that leaves the club outside the npower League Two relegation zone on goal difference.

Former Manchester City and Port Vale boss Horton returns for a second spell at the Moss Rose having taken charge in similar circumstances in April 2004.
