Notts County   1 - 0   Macclesfield

Notts County v Macclesfield

Notts County 1-0 Macclesfield

Notts County made it two wins from two games for new manager Steve Cotterill as they overcame Macclesfield.

Jamie Clapham's first-half header was enough to earn all three points for the promotion-chasing Magpies.

County started brightly and hit the underside of the crossbar with an effort from Luke Rodgers before Clapham connected with John Thompson's cross.

Macclesfield have not won on their travels since October and the Silkmen rarely looked like ending that run.


Notts County manager Steve Cotterill told BBC Radio Nottingham:
"It was hardly a classic, it wasn't very entertaining but it was a good defensive performance.

"We had to be strong back there and it's another clean sheet. We were tested physically because they are a tough side.

"Clean sheets do wonders for you at the end of the season and we could have had another couple of goals in the first half. I thought we deserved the points."
