Stockport County vs. Ossett Town

Edgeley Park

24th November


Stockport V Ossett Town

Stockport County take on the unknown today when they face Ossett Town in the FA Trophy 1st round at Edgeley Park this afternoon.

The Northern Premier League side are currently 14th in the table and there are currently 69 places between the two sides in the League Pyramid.

Ossett took on Salford City last weekend and won 2-0.

Jim Gannon was at the game on Tuesday watching them and we are sure Gannon will have his men properly prepared for the potential banana skin game.

Vital Quotes:

Craig Elliott, manager of Ossett town, 'As a manager you always have to have belief going into any game no matter who you are playing, but obviously I am realistic as well.

'Stockport are a professional outfit and fitness is going to tell somewhere along the line. But as long as we are organised and give it our best shot then we have a chance. These things happen in football don`t they?

'People like Simon Baldry and James Cotterill have played professionally and I am hoping they will help the younger lads play in front of a big crowd.

'The good thing is that Stockport will know absolutely nothing about us and most of the people involved with them won`t have even heard of Ossett Town.'

Stockport County Team News:

Stockport County could change the side that lost at Nuneaton with the likes of Jon Nolan and Sam Sheridan getting starts.

Connor Jennings can play and may get his home debut.

Only Alex Meaney is suffering from injury, Andy Halls can return from suspension.

Player to watch: Connor Jennings

Jennings will be looking to get off the mark this afternoon for County against a standard of side that he is comfortable scoring goals against.

Ossett Town Team News:

Ossett Town played in front of a crowd of 89 last week at Salford.

There is no team news available anywhere for them.

Player to watch: Who knows?

I have researched this for hours and can not find out any information about goalscorers.

Let's watch and find out!
