Macclesfield 0-2 Burton Albion

Macclesfield Town's 15-year stay in the Football League came to an end as their relegation was confirmed by a home defeat to Burton Albion.

Ben Futcher struck the crossbar in the first half for the Silkmen.

Jacques Maghoma put Burton ahead, converting a cross from Jimmy Phillips, before Calvin Zola raced on to a Chris Palmer pass to seal the win.

Victories for Barnet and Hereford ensured the Silkmen will be playing non-league football next season.

Town were disappointed not to get a penalty in the second half, when the ball seemed to strike Patrick Ada on the hand, but referee Oliver Langford waved play on.

However, Burton's late goals confirmed relegation for Macclesfield, who have failed to register a victory in any of their last 22 League Two matches, a winless run that stretches back to 31 December.

Not even the return of Brian Horton for a second spell as manager in March has been enough to inspire Macclesfield to survival.
