PREVIEW: Hatters set for bank holiday clash

Stockport County travel to The Lamb Ground on Monday as they go in search of their second away victory of the campaign at promotion rivals Tamworth.


The Opposition: 

Tamworth host County off the back of a tough game against full-time Harrogate at the weekend, and former Wrexham Manager Andy Morrell will be looking to push on after a reasonably positive start to the season.

The Lambs, who were founded in 1933, have been on the cusp of play-offs for the previous three years and with the division adding two extra places to the competition, the club will be hopeful, like County, of reaching those coveted spots.

Team news: 

With County coming off the back of a tough match at Gainsborough Trinity at the weekend, Jim Gannon may opt to utilise more of his squad in a bid to retain freshness. Gary Stopforth could return to County as the club look to finalise his clearance to play, whilst Stephen O’Halloran is fighting to return from his early-season knock.

Adam Thomas will miss out due to a knee injury with Warburton, Stephenson and Oswell set to lead the line in a three-pronged attack.


The match will be played at The Lamb Ground, a 4,000 capacity ground with a 3G surface.

The Lamb Ground, Kettlebrook Road, Tamworth, Staffordshire, B77 1AA


Spectators have the choice to sit or stand, with prices reaching £14 for adult seated admission.

As usual, imagine FM will be commentating on the game via County Player or 104.9fm. Alternatively social media updates will be available on Twitter and Facebook.

  1. Getting a seat at Tamworth last season was a right maul, so in case it’s the same this time:
    Asking three different stewards got us three different answers, so we ended up wandering from one end of the car park to the other to no avail. We eventually found our way to the general office, where you had to get a chit signed, then be escorted to the turnstiles and from there to a cordoned-off area of the seats, separated from the standing County fans by a steel gate. The same gate had to be opened and closed to get through to the toilets.
    In short, all a bit tinpot.
