Match Preview: Stockport County (H)

For the second Saturday in succession the Pitmen return home when Stockport County visit Keys Park.

Frank Sinclair’s side face County for the second time this month after travelling to Edgeley Park on the first day of March just a couple of weeks ago.

Matches against the Hatters in the last two seasons at Keys Park have seen a Pitmen victory back in 2014 and a 1-1 draw last season when Danny Glover gave us the lead in the first half before the strike was cancelled out in the second period.

After squandering a 3-1 lead last weekend Town know that they have to start winning matches again if they are to try and make ground up on the sides that sit directly above them in the National League North.

Manager Frank Sinclair was fully aware of the task that lay ahead for his side:

“What we need to do now is to get into a situation where we can turn those single points into three in order to try and put us in some control of what we want to achieve.

“It is all about confidence and if the results come then that can only improve. We can’t dwell on last weekend as what we need to do now is look forward to the games that lie ahead of us, starting this weekend against Stockport.”

Sinclair is set to be able to call upon a near fully fit squad for the game at Keys Park on Saturday, with just midfielder Andy Todd still a couple of weeks away from returning after suffering a bad break to his arm in January.

The squad has been strengthened this week with the arrivals of on-loan Wrexham midfielder Jonathan Royle and returning central defender Francino Francis.

The game against Stockport will be segregated with visiting supporters being housed in the Hednesford End of the ground and entering the ground through turnstiles 2A and 2B.

Home supporters will be housed in the rest of the stadium with entrance available through turnstiles 3A, 3B, 4A, 4B, 4C

Both sets of supporters will have access to a bar before and after the game.
