Sam Lowthian gave the visitors the lead shortly after half-time, but Macclesfield responded almost instantly as Sam Stelmaszek dived over.
However, there was to be one final twist as Lowthian scored his second from a pinpoint crossfield kick, Sedge’s fourth try of the afternoon. Ollie Glasse added the extras from wide out to put the Tigers 2 points clear at the final whistle, as Matt Bebbington’s side clinched back to back wins for the first time since September.
