AFC Telford United vs Stockport County

National League North

Saturday 15th September 2018, 3pm kick off

The Bucks will be hoping to get back to winning ways this weekend, when Stockport County will be the visitors to the New Bucks Head.

Last Saturday’s defeat to Darlington was Gavin Cowan’s first competitive loss as Telford manager, and the Bucks boss will want his men to bounce back against a strong County side.

Another of the preseason favourites, the Hatters have had a mixed start to the season. They currently sit in 11th place on 11 points. Jim Gannon’s side began with two wins from their first three games but have won just once in half a dozen outings since. And the Hatters have picked up the majority of their points on home soil too, with four of their points coming on the the road.

Gannon freshened up his squad in the summer after County lost a couple of key men. Top scorer Jason Oswell joined Morecambe, while energetic midfielder James Ball left for Stevenage. Between them, the duo accounted for 34 of the Hatters’ 75 league goals last season. Ash Palmer, Connor Dimaio and Frank Mulhern are among the new arrivals at Edgeley Park.

The Bucks, meanwhile, suffered a first defeat of the season at Darlington but have picked up maximum points at home so far. Telford chief, Gavin Cowan, will want a reaction from his men this weekend, as the Bucks go in search of another three points in front of the Telford faithful.
