Phil Parkinson announced "same again" for City's penultimate home game of the season against struggling Macclesfield.

Parkinson named the same side which effectively secured safety with the 3-1 win at Northampton a week ago. And there were no changes to the bench either with Chris Dagnall not being risked after his back injury.

Macclesfield would jump out of the bottom two if they won for the first time in 2012. Former City right back Jon Bateson was dropped to the bench on his Valley Parade return.

CITY: Duke, Ramsden, Oliver, Branston, Kozluk, Fagan, Jones, Ravenhill, Reid, Wells, Hanson. Subs: Flynn, Syers, Smalley, Bullock, McLaughlin.
