Macclesfield Town have postponed Saturday's League Two home game against Plymouth after the club were served a "zero-capacity notice" at Moss Rose.

The club suspended ticket sales on Friday after being served the notice by the local Safety Advisory Group.

That led the English Football League to threaten "significant" consequences should the match be called off.

Macclesfield were docked six points on Thursday for non-payment of wages and failing to fulfil a previous fixture.

Derby day for us! Grimsby v Scunthorpe. Facing off against our old manager too. Should be a good game but just know it’ll be shit.

Some big games in the Championship this weekend, I would be happy with a draw from West Brom.

Couple of days off yet for Rovers, but fully expecting three points; we're on a fine run at the moment, and Wigan are shit away from home. Will be interesting to see how we do line up on Monday, all 17 players who have started the last two matches are well worthy of doing so again. Refreshing to be in a position where we have a bit of competition for places!

Losing 1-0 with not long left to go. Not a BAD performance by Grimsby but a lot of improvement needed; the obvious thing being a couple of goals!

Imagine a Sheffield Derby in the Premier League...

Then again though, it is only December and they have a sure fire points deduction coming up. :D

Officiating in the EFL everyone.

Twice now this has happened this season, both resulted in defeats.

Given Wigan's shiteness away from home I expected Blackburn to be much better and assert their authority. They've not really done that and they just look really poor. Thought I'd see more from the likes of Dack, Graham, Armstrong...

Was it not for the handball?

We're awful, home section at Ewood is the fullest in 18 months and we're getting done by Wigan. Dack always goes missing for a couple of games, not aided by two weeks off and his life off the pitch. Graham is past it sadly, difference between this season and last is very marked. Rumoured to be off to Oz before too long. Armstrong just runs a lot and chips in the odd decent showing. We miss Tosin at the back badly, amount of times we have had to depend on Flappy Walton not being flappy is terrifying. Need Gallagher for Graham and Holtby for anyone of your choice.

What's happening with Dack outside of football?

Need to get Downing on the ball more by the looks of it. Seems to still be able to whip a decent ball in. That Williams guy at the back for you looks like a mistake waiting to happen.

No mate. Push in the back.

Gobsmacked when he gave it and saw it back properly. See that a thousand times during a game.

Engaged to Olivia Attwood off Love Island and TOWIE (or something) and seems to carry that sort of Essex lad label a bit. Compare and contrast to your James Milners and Stuart Downings who are still going strong well past their primes owing to a proper mental and physical attitude.

Anyway, Dack looked in an awful state when he went off, didn't see the incident as it happened just as we were about to show the board for Holtby's sub but I don't think he'll be around for a while.

Gameplan essentially seemed to be to get it to Downing and Nyambe and let them ping something in until Dack went off. Downing has been a hell of a revelation and Nyambe is a rising star, but they are our fullbacks and we looked so delicate when we lost it playing that way. Williams is noticably worse than Lenihan and Tosin, but can plugs gaps temporaily. Would you believe he used to be a left back, and worse!

Frustrating tonight but we have only ourselves to blame. Wigan could have been well up at half time but for Walton and Lenihan, and we only truly got going when Holtby came on and we had the run of possession, and the absolute whopper officiating decided he'd give us some soft free kicks. Onwards to Blues at home now anyway. Hopefully they got the mother of all bollockings at full time and that can spur them on. The eyes of the world in effect could have been looking tonight and we shat ourselves.
