Rhodes, who hit a brace in the league against MK Dons on Tuesday, started Saturday's one-sided rout at the Galpharm Stadium by heading in a Gary Roberts cross in the 19th minute.

Anthony Pilkington doubled the lead soon after with a classy curler while Benik Afobe made it 3-0 by toe poking through goalkeeper Jose Veiga's legs in first half stoppage time.

The Terriers produced an impressive display after performance coach Steve Black left the club on Friday and the players held clear-the-air talks with chairman Dean Hoyle over comments made in his match programme notes last weekend.

The intensity did not let up after the break, with defender Jamie McCombe turning in a 49th-minute Graham Carey corner at the near post.

Antony Kay made it 5-0 with a powerful blast five minutes later and Macclesfield's afternoon was summed up in the 73rd minute when Pilkington robbed Paul Morgan and squared for Roberts to tap in.

Mail Box

But Biting Doesn't Hurt Like Stamping...

There are Liverpool fans arguing that Luis Suarez is nowhere near Diego Costa's sh*t-house league but we have plenty of love for the agitator too. Oh and Spurs...

It's an afternoon Mailbox that offers the reaction to the reaction, with a defence for Diego Costa offered, and Balotelli mooted to move to QPR. Plus a silly idea about the Mails...
