Macclesfield will again be without a trio of players for the home clash with rivals Bury.

Midfielder Izak Reid (ankle), left-back Carl Tremarco and Hamza Bencherif (ankle) remain sidelined but Ricky Sappleton and Ben Wright could return after missing Tuesday's 1-1 draw at Accrington.

Silkmen assistant boss Gary Simpson, who was placed in charge of the side following the death of Keith Alexander last week, has no other injury or suspension concerns.

Simpson has guided Macclesfield to four points in two games and the derby against Bury will be their first home match since their manager's passing.

Alexander, a hugely popular figure in the game, managed a number of clubs and also enjoyed a spell as director of football at Bury.

Bury boss Alan Knill has no fresh injury concerns.

Long-term casualties Paul Scott, Danny Carlton and Damien Allen are the only players missing from the squad as the Shakers bid to return to winning ways.

Defender Scott is nursing a knee injury, striker Carlton is edging closer towards full fitness after a long-term Achilles injury and midfielder Allen is recovering from a long-standing groin problem.

Knill's side have gone four matches without a win, drawing all of them and scoring only one goal during that sequence.

The run is threatening their hopes of automatic promotion and Knill said: "It's frustrating for everyone, but we just have to keep going and dig ourselves out of this hole."
