Match ends, Macclesfield Town 3, Altrincham 0.
Macclesfield Town eased to victory over struggling local rivals Altrincham.
The Silkmen, who lost their last two National League games and were also knocked out of the FA Cup by Portsmouth, almost trailed when Jordan Sinnott's long-range shot hit the bar.
But Kristian Dennis slotted the hosts ahead and, after Damian Reeves shot wastefully wide for Alty, a deflected Danny Whitaker strike made it 2-0.
And Chris Holroyd slid in the third to seal victory with nine minutes left.
