Date: 18th April 2015\r\n\r\nCompetition: Vanarama Conference North\r\n\r\nVenue: Whaddon Road\r\n\r\nKick-off: 3pm\r\n\r\nGloucester City face Stockport County at Whaddon Road in their final home game of the season on Saturday and could move to within two points of their mid-table opponents with a win.\r\n\r\nThe Tigers made it six games unbeaten in the league with their seventh win in a row over Worcester City on Tuesday night, where they came out 2-1 winners. This result meant the Tigers are now mathematically safe from relegation.\r\n\r\nStockport have not won in six matches with Alan Lord stepping down as manager to become director of football earlier this week.\r\n\r\nHarris said: “Stockport’s results have not been great but we can’t take anything for granted, we need to work as hard as we have in our last 10 games.\r\n\r\nThe last time the two teams met, County ran out 5-3 winners at Edgeley Park in October in a match that saw City attempt to mount a 4 goal comeback, before being pegged back and eventually losing.\r\n\r\nThe previous season when the Hatters visited Whaddon Road, The Tigers put in a convincing performance and recorded a comfortable 2-0 victory against the former Division One side.\r\n\r\nThere will be a guard of honour for Tom Webb before the presentation celebrating his 600th appearance and counting. We urge supporters to buy their tickets first and then leave the ground should they wish to access the bar, in order to get as many people in to give Tom the ovation he deserves.\r\n\r\nThe match will be segregated and Stockport fans will be in the Hazelwoods stand, which is accessible next to the Bowls club on Whaddon Road. Stewards will be on hand to give assistance should it be required. City fans have access to the main stand and terracing underneath the main stand.\r\n\r\nTeam news: Connor Thompson (broken hand) is back in contention after returning to the squad.\r\n\r\nJames Bowen and Harry Williams have been recalled from their successful loan spell by Cheltenham Town and we wish them all the best in the future.\r\n\r\nSahr Kabba is still unlikely to make the team as he is still suffering from a tight hamstring, with Tim Harris saying “the last thing we want to do is more damage and it is too early to say if we’ll see him feature against Fylde.”\r\n\r\nIt is a possibility that Harvey Rivers will make his competitive debut for the club. Harris said: “Harvey has developed really well and shown a lot of maturity, so it is possible he’ll be in contention.”\r\n\r\nYou can listen to live commentary from Severn Sport from 2:30pm.
