Hereford lose one player to suspension but welcome back two for what is sure to be an emotionally charged game at home to Macclesfield.

The match was understandably in doubt following the sad death of Town manager Keith Alexander shortly after the Silkmen`s game on Tuesday night.

But after discussions with Alexander`s family and officials from both clubs, it was on Thursday given the go ahead.

The Bulls will be without James McQuilken after he was sent off in their 1-0 win at Cheltenham in midweek, but defender Paul Downing and goalkeeper Chris Adamson both return having served one-match bans of their own.

Manager John Trewick may be reluctant to make too many changes to his starting XI following the hard-fought victory at Whaddon Road.

Jamie Tolley has resumed training after his absence with a shin injury but the midfielder is lacking match fitness and needs minutes for the reserves before being considered for first-team duty.

Macclesfield will be without a trio of players for the trip which ends a harrowing week.

Midfielder Izak Reid sustained an ankle injury in Tuesday`s 1-0 defeat at Notts County and will play no part.

Left-back Carl Tremarco is still recovering after returning from a hernia problem, while long-term absentee Hamza Bencherif will not play again this season due to an ankle injury.

However, striker Kris Dennis could be in contention following a shin complaint and Kyle Wilson may also feature after being recalled from his loan spell at FC United.

The Silkmen have mourned the death Alexander this week and assistant boss Gary Simpson has been placed in charge of the side.

He said: "The gaffer would have expected us to go Hereford and put on a show as if it was any other game."
