PREVIEW: Hatters travel to Salford in search of first away victory

Stockport County travel to the new-look Moor Lane this evening, as they face Salford City in their second away match of the season.


The Opposition: 

Salford City, nicknamed ‘The Ammies’ and Founded in 1940, are aiming for promotion at the second time of asking in the National League North, finishing 4th in 2016/17, the club went full-time in the summer of 2017 and will be looking to secure 1st place this season.

Joint managers Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley are no strangers to success and will be looking for a third straight victory on Tuesday against The Hatters, who know it will be a tough game.

Team news: 

Stephen O’Halloran and Adam Thomas remained sidelined through injuries picked up earlier in the campaign, whilst Darren Stephenson will be aiming to make a comeback after missing the 2-2 draw with Harrogate at the weekend. Former Salford striker Matty Warburton could also be a doubt after his injury on Saturday. Sam Walker could take his place as he looks to get one over on his old club.


The match will be taking place at Moor Lane Stadium, Salford. The ground is in the midst of refurbishment with three out of four new stands completed.

Address: Moor Lane, Salford, Greater Manchester, M7 3PZ


With County set to sell out their allocation, the only way to watch the game will be to secure a ticket in advance of the match. Salford City fans can pay on the gate (not advised for County fans but possible).

For those not lucky enough to be amongst the 1,000 travelling fans, imagine FM’s 104/9 commentary will be the best way of staying updated on proceedings. Alternatively social media updates will be available on Twitter and Facebook.


As both sides look to boost their league campaigns with a win, this heavyweight fixture is certainly the stand-out fixture of the evening. Come on County!
