Match Preview: Stockport County (A)

The Pitmen play Stockport County for the first time in the league this season, when they travel to Edgeley Park on Saturday.

Previous visits to the home of Stockport have proved to bring a mixed set of results. On our first ever visit to the former Football League side a single goal in the first half earned us all three points in a 1-0 victory in March 2014.

Eight months later in the 2014/15 season the Pitmen were on the wrong end of a 3-0 scoreline, as the home side came out on top.

After suffering disappointment last time on our own patch, manager Frank Sinclair is looking forward at attempting to get back to winning ways at Stockport this weekend.

Ahead of the game, Sinclair said:

“We will go again this weekend, it is fortunate enough that the results went our way (in the last game) so we stay in the same position going into this game.

“We have got to go somewhere and get some points over the next five games. We are fortunate that four out of the next five are at home, but we have got an aim for a points tally out of those, including winning on the road. I have targeted a number of points and we can still very much get them, that is for sure.”

After coming through two training sessions this week midfielder Tom Thorley is set to be available again for selection after missing the last month through injury. Andy Todd does miss out with injury, however Sinclair is set to be able to call upon the services of midfielder Phil Trainer again for the first time in four matches after he served his suspension following a red card on Boxing Day.

The squad is also bolstered by the new loan signing of West Bromwich Albion youngster George Cleet, while his clubmate Jack Fitzwater’s loan has been extended by a further month.

The Pitmen will be wearing their away strip for the game against Stockport.
