Match ends, Macclesfield Town 4, Forest Green Rovers 1.
Macclesfield Town condemned National League leaders Forest Green Rovers to a second successive defeat with a comfortable win.
Jon Parkin tapped the visitors ahead, but Kristian Dennis levelled following an error from goalkeeper Jonny Maxted.
Rob Sinclair was sent off for Rovers after handling on the line and Dennis scored his second from the spot.
Paul Lewis's header and a late Danny Whitaker strike helped the Silkmen win after back-to-back defeats.
Forest Green manager Ady Pennock told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:
"I thought we were dominating the game when we scored, but Jonny's been absolutely fantastic, so I'm not going to cane him - he's been different class.
"He's a young man learning his trade. It'll be not good for him, but it's a good learning curve."
