Macclesfield fans throw glass at Cambridge keeper causing match to be halted

It has been pictured that Cambridge United keeper Dimitar Mitov had glass thrown at him by Macclesfield fans during the two sides’ 1-1 draw.

The game saw the Silkmen confirm safety from going back down to the National League in their first season back in the EFL since 2012.

Though the match was temporarily halted as ‘officials, stewards and players clear the pitch of objects which have been thrown onto the pitch.’

According to SunSport, he also had plastic cups and coins chucked at him with the current scoreline at 1-0 to Cambridge.

At this point, Notts County were out of the relegation zone and safe for another season.

However five minutes after the objects were removed, Macclesfield got themselves not just back in the game but also what turned out to be a vital goal.

Elliott Durrell collected the ball in the area and hammered home in front of the Star Lane End to cause jubilant celebrations, some of those in the stand knowing the score elsewhere and what the equalsier meant.

Some are now speculating that because that game was delayed, it could have spurred Macclesfield on to get a goal for themselves despite already being one down and knew before hand that they needed just a point to stay up regardless what happens.

The Sun stated: “It would have allowed the hosts to know the result of their direct rivals to safety Notts County before finishing their game.”

As mentioned, Neil Ardley’s Notts County were out of the relegation zone, however Swindon fought back came out 3-1 winner, ending the Magpies 131-year stay in the Football League, which they were a founding member of.
