Macclesfield boss Gary Simpson has only two injury absentees ahead of the home clash with derby rivals Stockport.

Simpson is still without the services of striker Ricky Sappleton and midfielder Richard Butcher.

Both players are nursing knee injures and remain sidelined but Emile Sinclair, Ross Draper and Matty Hamshaw are expected to be fit after minor knocks.

Silkmen physio Nick Reid said: "The only two who are out for the weekend are Ricky Sappleton and Richard Butcher, who are both still suffering with their knee injuries.

"Ricky was told four weeks before he could really get into full training by his surgeon, and has had three of those now.

"Richard Butcher is still sore with his ligament problem so we need to wait and see how he does in the next couple of weeks. Other than that, everyone is fit and available."

Stockport boss Paul Simpson is hoping to have Jordan Rose and Robbie Williams available.

Both players are nursing injuries but Simpson is hoping the defensive pair will be passed fit for action at Moss Rose.

Gianluca Havern, Sam Hare and Ritchie Partridge all left the club this week after agreeing settlements on their contracts at Edgeley Park.

Simpson had hoped to bring in a Premier League player on loan until January but his efforts failed to bear fruit.

Simpson said: "We've got Robbie Williams and Jordan Rose who are both injured and I'm hoping that they might be fit, which will give us a couple more options.

"Apart from that there's not a lot else we can do."
