The Football Association has confirmed it is investigating claims that Macclesfield captain Nat Brown was racially abused by spectators during Tuesday night's match at Barrow.

The allegation from Macclesfield followed the FA Cup second-round match between the two clubs at Holker Street which ended 1-1.

Macclesfield manager Steve King complained that Brown had been called "a monkey" by some Barrow fans as he made his way out for the second half. Referee David Webb included his version of events in his report of the match, which will go to a December 29 replay to determine who will face npower Championship side Cardiff in the third round.
