The 32-year-old has made four appearances since joining John Askey’s team on loan in February, and scored on his debut in a 3-2 defeat at Woking.

The centre-back was also on target in Macclesfield’s 2-1 victory away at Hereford United on Tuesday 25 February.

Having now extended his loan at Moss Rose, Pilkington could feature for Macclesfield tomorrow night in their clash with fellow Play-Off hopefuls Kidderminster Harriers.

The Silkmen are currently nine points adrift of the Play-Off places in the Skrill Premier, but have three games in hand over fifth-placed Nuneaton Town.

“I’m thoroughly enjoying it here so far,” he said to the Silkmen's matchday programme on Saturday. “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.

“But it’s good to get a run of games and to be enjoying my football again.”
