Macclesfield 1-3 MK Dons: Paul Tisdale's side boost promotion hopes
Last Updated: 09/03/19 6:53pm
MK Dons increased Macclesfield's troubles as they came from behind to comfortably run out 3-1 winners at Moss Rose and boost their promotion hopes.
David Wheeler, Callum Brittain and Kieran Agard struck for the visitors after Nathan Cameron had given Macclesfield a 19th-minute lead.
Silkmen boss Sol Campbell rang the changes in his starting XI, with nine alterations to the side that began the previous game.
But it was the only retained outfield player, centre-back Cameron, that put Town ahead.
Elliott Durrell's free-kick into the box was headed back across goal by Botti Biabi and bundled in by the hosts' skipper.
Macc had further chances but James Pearson hit the bar and Dons goalkeeper Stuart Moore smothered the danger with Durrell poised to score.
The visitors levelled before the break, Wheeler darting to the near post and glancing in Conor McGrandles' corner.
Rejuvenated by that goal on the stroke of half-time, MK Dons took control following the restart and, after Agard wasted an early chance, Brittain drilled their second goal in through a crowd.
And the only downside for the high-flying Dons was that they added just one more goal - Agard's 79th-minute header - to their tally.
