Macclesfield have reported allegations that defender Ryan Jackson was racially abused by a Barrow player during Saturday's rescheduled FA Cup second-round replay.

The Silkmen won 4-1 to set up a third-round clash with Cardiff but the victory was overshadowed by the alleged incident and a post-match fracas in the players' tunnel that was defused by police.

Town have reported the alleged incident to the police and the Football Association, and in a statement on their website, chief executive John Harris said: "We are very disappointed that this has overshadowed an excellent performance on the pitch, but we remain staunchly opposed to all forms of racism, which we believe has no place in football, or indeed anywhere."
