Notts County claimed a second successive emphatic win as they put Macclesfield to the sword in a 4-0 victory at Moss Rose.
Since former England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson took over as director of football, the Magpies have scored nine league goals without conceding.
The visitors took the lead in the 13th minute when Paul Morgan charged down a Lee Hughes shot only for Ricky Ravenhill to send the return into the roof of the net off Ross Draper.
Moments later Stephen Hunt saw a firm header crash off the crossbar but he was not to be denied on the stroke of half-time when he powered a firm downward header home from just six yards.
County extended their lead four minutes after the break when Macclesfield striker Ben Wright clumsily nodded a Ben Davies free-kick into his own net.
Macclesfield forced their only save from visiting goalkeeper Russell Hoult when former FC United striker Kyle Wilson sent a 15-yard shot straight at the stopper.
But it was County who added their fourth a minute later when Craig Westcarr converted a neat through ball from substitute Karl Hawley.
