Stockport County v Gloucester City
\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nDate: Saturday 4th October, 2014\r\nCompetition: Vanarama North\r\nVenue: Edgeley Park\r\nKick-off: 3pm\r\n\r\nOpponents: Formed in 1883, the same year as the Tigers, the club joined the Football League in 1900 and enjoyed a spell of 110 years in system.\r\n\r\nThey were League Cup semi-finalists in 1996-97, and have won both League Two and League One in years past; also finishing runners up in the Football League Cup on two occasions.\r\n\r\nThe Hatters play at the historic Edgeley Park (capacity 10,900), a ground that hosted rugby union for many years with Sale Sharks; incidentally Gloucester Rugby were never victorious throughout Sale’s years at the stadium; something the City’s football club will look to rectify.\r\n\r\nThe famous Cheadle End, the largest stand in non-league football holds over 5,000 spectators, more than a majority of Skrill North club’s entire grounds.\r\n\r\nHistory: The Tigers remain undefeated against Stockport County, Scott Wilson spurred the Tigers to an improbable 2-2 draw at Edgeley Park after going two down. The re-match at Whaddon Road saw a wonderful City performance seal a 2-0 victory over the Hatters.\r\n\r\nTeam news: Joe Parker picked up a thigh strain in the FA Cup replay against Paulton Rovers on Tuesday and is likely to miss out.\r\n\r\nClub captain Jack Harris received some positive news from his knee scan, which was a lot better than first expected; he should return to the first-team fold in the next four-six weeks.\r\n\r\nMike Green and Adam Mann are also doubts but might be fit by Saturday afternoon.\r\n\r\nYou’ll be able to catch all of the action from Edgeley Park on Twitter (@GCAFCofficial) and Facebook (GCAFCofficial).
