Macclesfield have extended the loan spell of Mansfield defender George Pilkington until the end of the season.

Pilkington initially joined the Silkmen for a month in February and the 32-year-old has since appeared four times for the club, scoring two goals.

"I'm thoroughly enjoying it here," Pilkington told the club website.external-link

"This season has been a bit tough for me as I've struggled to hold down a regular place at Mansfield or when I was on loan at Forest Green Rovers."

The former Port Vale and Luton centre-back added: "It's good to get a run of games and to be enjoying my football again."
