First time: Kevin Hodges’s team lost 1-4 at Moss Rose in a Division 3 fixture on Saturday, April 8, 2000. Sean McCarthy scored our goal.

Last time: Carl Fletcher’s team remained deeply entrenched in the League Two relegation mire following a 1-1 draw at Macclesfield on Tuesday, February 28, 2012. Conor Hourihane gave the Greens the lead just after halfway through the second half. Unfortunately, former Argyle striker George Donnelly equalised for the home team deep into stoppage time.

Biggest win: We have never won at Moss Rose.

Heaviest defeat: The 1-4 loss back in April 2000 on our first visit to the Silkmen.

Most goals in a single game: Five, in Macclesfield’s 4-1 win in April 2000.

Further interesting facts: Argyle have scored exactly one goal in each of their four visits to Moss Rose. All four goals have come in the second halves of the respective matches, the last three of them put us 1-0 up.

Our 1-4 defeat on April 8, 2000 and our 1-3 loss on February 3, 2001 were part of a run lasting almost 17 months in which we failed to win outside of Devon in the EFL. The run started following a 1-0 victory at Chester City on Saturday, November 6, 1999. It didn’t end until Saturday, March 31, 2001 when Paul Sturrock’s Pilgrims won 2-1 at York City. We did, however, win at both Exeter City and Torquay United during this long spell.

Argyle’s third visit to Macclesfield, during our 2001-2 Division 3 championship winning season, followed an almost identical pattern to our last visit to the Cheshire club in 2012. In both matches we took the lead in the 71st minute, only for the Silkmen to equalise in injury time. On Saturday, March 2, 2002, it was centre-half Graham Coughlan who gave us the lead and Town’s Chris Priest equalised.
