match report

George Donnelly earned Macclesfield a vital point with the last touch of the game as they drew 1-1 with relegation-threatened rivals Plymouth.

The former Plymouth striker converted a Marcus Marshall cross with a neat header to earn Macc only their second point from the last 10 games. On-loan Sunderland playmaker Conor Hourihane had given Plymouth the lead with a 71st minute strike.

Macc skipper Matty Hamshaw brought the game to life in the 35th minute with a fierce drive which skimmed the bar. Three minutes later Colin Daniel was again inches over for the home side with a 20-yard volley.

Ben Futcher should have put Macc ahead after 55 minutes but slid the ball wide from eight yards and Plymouth keeper Jake Cole then produced a stunning fingertip save to tip a Hamshaw drive over the bar.

Hourihane sent a 25-yard inches wide in the end-to-end contest but in the 71st minute he lashed a 15-yard volley through a group of defenders which on-loan keeper Richard O'Donnell could only palm into the roof of the net to give Plymouth the lead.

But Donnelly had the final say at the death to earn a share of the spoils.
