Macclesfield v Otley



Macclesfield welcome second from bottom Otley to Priory Park in National League One this weekend and will be looking to continue their impressive home form.



The Blues played out a hard fought 17-17 draw against Redruth last time out and will want to return to winning ways on home turf. The visitors almost caused an upset against third placed Cambridge, losing 31-29.



Otley are very much involved in a relegation battle and every point counts from now until the end of the season, they currently sit second from bottom having played 27 games, winning just 6, and losing 21. They do have the mental edge as they beat Macclesfield 27-19 in the reverse fixture earlier in the year.



Director of Rugby Geoff Wappet could be without prop Tom Mantell who left the field after just 20 minutes in the game against Redruth through injury but other than that should have a fully fit squad to choose from.



Macc are just ten points behind third placed Cambridge with a game in hand and will believe they are more than capable of catching them so will be looking for another maximum point victory on Saturday.
