Stockport County Preview

It's Marshall Lancaster v Jason Manford. It's Mr Methane v David Dickinson. It's Peter Crouch v James Hickman. It's Ian Curtis v Bruce Jones. It's Cheshire derby time.
Stockport County come to the Moss Rose on Saturday afternoon in what is an early relegation fight at the bottom of the league. Both teams are still without a win this season in the league but with the Silkmen getting their first victory under the belts in the JPT, its advantage the home side.
Gary Simpson spoke to Canalside Radio last night and said he has already picked his starting line up for the game. Ex County winger Matthew Hamshaw will return to the starting XI after sitting out the midweek win against Morecambe.
The gaffer's biggest decision is whether to play Vinny Mukendi from the start or put Emile Sinclair back in to partner Tyrone Barnett in attack.
Simpson has a near full strength side to choose from. Ricky Sappleton and Richard Butcher are the only ones to miss out through injury.
Stockport come into the game after a 4-0 thrashing at home to Shrewsbury Town last weekend. If anyone saw the goals from that game they will have seen ex Silkmen Danny Swailes having a bit of a nightmare.
The defender departed the Silkmen in bad fashion if you can remember. He signed for the MK Dons after being tapped up by Paul Ince the day we played them at the Moss and he wore the MK Dons tracksuit that day. It didnt go down well with the home fans. Expect more than a warmish welcome tomorrow Danny.
County boss Paul Simpson is hoping to have Jordan Rose and Robbie Williams fit for the game after both picked up injuries.
There is no doubt about it that its going to be a tasty encounter between these sides and TheSilkWeb can't wait for it!
