Macclesfield players plan to refuse playing their FA Cup tie this weekend

Alan Nixon claims they will be staying away from training prior to their again against the Isthmian League Premier Division side.

Macclesfield squad members, who have already protested about being failed to get paid on time, were told that last month’s money would be delayed again.

Both the English Football League and Professional Footballers’ Association are trying to find a way to solve the situation.

The slow progress on that front is frustrating the players however and have no choice to boycott their game, something they nearly did towards the end of last season.

If they do so, it would lead to a potential expulsion and ‘hit the chances’ of Macclesfield going on a money spinning run.

The management staff are also supportive of the players’ plans.

Macclesfield have slipped to 15th in the League Two table after they were defeated 2-1 at Carlisle on Saturday.
