The Pitmen play Stockport County for the first time in the league this season, when they travel to Edgeley Park on Tuesday evening.
After the original fixture was called off just as the team arrived at the ground, it now means that we will face County twice in a matter of weeks – with them due at Keys Park on Saturday 19 March.
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 – with him challenging his players to step up in front of what will be a large crowd.
Ahead of the game, Sinclair said:
“The players have responded well before when we have had midweek games, we will need that same kind of response when we go to Stockport.
“Looking at the game it will be a hostile atmosphere that is for sure and the players shouldn’t need to get up for it. I will be picking a team that can fight themselves out of this position.”
Apart from midfielder Andy Todd, the manager will have a full squad of players to choose from for the game – with midfielder Tom Thorley having continued his comeback with 45 minutes against Brackley Town after missing out on the trip to Lowestoft Town in midweek.
The Pitmen will be wearing their away strip for the game against Stockport that kicks off at the usual midweek time of 7.45pm.
