Macclesfield`s all-time record league goalscorer Matthew Tipton converted at the wrong end to gift Burton an undeserved equaliser in a 1-1 draw at the Moss Rose.

Desperate to clear a John McGrath corner in the 57th minute, Tipton only succeeded in glancing it past the stranded Jon Brain.

Macclesfield made a dramatic start, scoring in the third minute when poaching centre-back Nat Brown converted a Lee Bell corner with a superb 15-yard looping header.

The home side got the ball in the back of the net again in the 34th minute when John Rooney nodded home a Tipton cross only to be ruled offside.

The Silkmen were then indebted to captain Paul Morgan who made a superb diving stop to clear a powerful Tom Parkes drive off the line in the 40th minute.

Town youngster Vinny Mukendi showed why he had been given a two-year contract with a powerful 40-yard run only to see his snapshot palmed wide by Artur Krysiak in the 49th minute.

Burton finished the more strongly and might have grabbed a win at the death only for centre-back Tony James to crash a header inches wide from just four yards out.
