Brentford FC will be hosting a Macclesfield side on Saturday who were brought back down to earth with a bump last week - and then some.
Following a three-match winning streak in which they beat struggling Luton and Bournemouth before hammering Port Vale 4-1, the Silkmen found themselves on the wrong end of a 4-1 scoreline at home to Exeter.
It was a return to their poor early season form, in which a League Cup win over Blackpool was the only bright spot of a nightmare seven-game spell which saw six defeats, including a 6-0 thrashing at Darlington.
Keith Alexander's men are likely to line up with former Port Vale keeper Johnny Brain behind a back four of Bury loanee Paul Morgan (ex-Preston and Lincoln) alongside Matthew Flynn, Shaun Brisley and Izak Reid, who has come through the ranks at Moss Rose - although Sean Hessey (exHuddersfield, Kilmarnock, Blackpool and Chester) could feature.
Another former apprentice in James Jennings should start on the left of midfield, with former Hereford man Danny Thomas on the right, and in between, the pairing of Terry Dunfield (ex-Man City and Bury) and Lee Bell (ex-Crewe and Mansfield).
Up front is where Macclesfield have the most experience with former Lincoln, Peterborough and Boston striker Francis Green likely to partner 34-year-old veteran Simon Yeo (ex-Hyde,Lincoln, Peterborough, Chester and Bury), although Martin Gritton (ex-Lincoln, Torquay, mansfield, Plymouth, Grimsby and Yeovil), is also in contention.
But apprentice midfielder John Rooney, brother of Wayne,is unlikely to feature after starting just one game this season.
In a side so young, with most of the first team having come through the ranks at Moss Rose, 34-year-old Yeo provides a bit of experience up front for Macclesfield.
Mike Glendinning,of the Macclesfield Express, said: "Simon will keep the Brentford back-four occupied and won't give them an easy ride. "He's a good finisher and gets a fair few goals, as he's done throughout his career."
