Sammie Szmodics
Sammie Szmodics joined Braintree Town on a one-month loan from League One side Colchester United

Sammie Szmodics scored on his Braintree Town debut to help the Iron seal all three points against Macclesfield Town.

Both sides had early chances as Macclesfield's Kristian Dennis and Chez Isaac, for Braintree, forced saves.

But Szmodics, who joined on a one-month loan from Colchester on Friday, placed the ball past keeper Shwan Jalal.

Tony Diagne nodded wide and Will Norris reacted well to block Danny Whitehead's long-range effort as Macclesfield were unable to find an equaliser.
