League Two side handed second points deduction this season

Watch: Clubs face £200m financial hole, says EFL chairman (Sky Sports) This is their second deduction this campaign – they were docked 10 points with four suspended in December, later dropped to seven with three suspended, for non-payment of salaries and failure to fulfil a game against Crewe.  They have now slipped a place in the fourth tier and are only three points above bottom side Stevenage.  Macclesfield have suffered from financial trouble and there have been off-field problems throughout the 2019-20 season. They were also forced to field a squad made up of youth team players and loanees in their FA Cup first-round tie against seventh-tier Kingstonian.
