Hereford will be without Byron Webster as they look to break their home duck against Macclesfield and pick up three much-needed points.

The on-loan centre-half was recalled by parent club Doncaster on Thursday to boost their depleted defence, although he started last week`s 1-0 defeat at Bradford on the bench.

Bulls boss Jamie Pitman will be forced into a defensive reshuffle, though, to counter the loss of Sam Gwynne to a hamstring injury.

Although, his options at the back remain limited with Ryan Valentine (hip) and Ryan Green (suspended) still missing.

Midfielder Nicky Featherstone has this week extended his loan stay from Hull by a further month and will be hoping to mark the occasion by helping Hereford secure what would be their first league victory at Edgar Street since the final day of last season.

Macclesfield boss Gary Simpson will again be without defenders Carl Tremarco and Shaun Brisley.

The pair remain sidelined with hip injuries but utility player Nat Brown is expected to be available after missing last weekend`s 4-2 home defeat against Gillingham.

Midfielder Lewis Chalmers should be back after limping out after just 11 minutes against the Gills but on-loan Everton defender Aristote Nsiala is nursing a knock and rated doubtful.

The Silkmen head to Edgar Street on the back of three successive defeats and Simpson has warned his men not to take their opponents for granted.

He said: "It's going to be tough despite their position in the table. We certainly can't go into the match thinking we only have to turn up."
