Stockport vs Hartlepool Preview – 09/10/2019 National League
Stockport began the season extremely well with County winning five of their opening nine games. They won four of their opening five home matches and looked a very tough team to beat. Unfortunately, Gannon’s men have struggled to maintain those high standards and have failed to collect three points since September 3rd.
Despite the signing of Adam Hammill, Stockport haven’t been able to score in recent weeks, and although they picked up a creditable 0-0 draw at Gander Green Lane on Saturday, it was another blank for County. They’ve now gone four games without finding the back of the net and haven’t scored a National League goal since September 14th.
Hartlepool come into the game just two points and two places above today’s hosts and they will be full of confidence following their victory at the weekend. The Monkey Hangers have lost just two of their last ten matches and are showing a tremendous spirit. Despite falling behind to a Rhys Murphy goal in the 90th minute, Pools managed to rally and deservedly collected three points in the dying embers of the contest.
They have traveled fairly well this campaign with just one defeat in their last six away trips and have collected points from Eastleigh, Chorley, Maidenhead and Barrow. The latter is not an easy place to go.
Craig Hignett Watching from the Stands
Hartlepool have been in excellent form however they will be without manager Craig Hignett, who will be forced to watch from the stands. The former Boro man has been charged by the FA with threatening behaviour towards the officials and he will be banned from the touchline for the next couple of matches. He will likely have a team of assistants barking out instructions throughout this game, and he may enjoy taking in a different vantage point at Edgely Park.
Pools Spirit is Shining Through
Although they’ve had their fair share of problems over the last few years, Hartlepool now have a decent squad with plenty of battlers. From the battling qualities of Michael Raynes through to the skill of Peter Kioso, the team have a decent blend of players in the XI. They are incredibly tough to beat and with the exception of their opening day defeat to Sutton United – their other four losses have come against sides currently positioned inside the top eight. This won’t be easy for Stockport.
Have Stockport Tightened Up?
The hosts are struggling for inspiration in the final third, and they’re attacking output has worsened since late August. However, their goalless draw against Sutton was a step in the right direction and the return of Ash Palmer certainly helped matters in South London. After conceding 15 times in their five previous outings, it was vitally important to keep the opponents off the scoresheet and that gives them something to build upon.
