PREVIEW | Stockport County

Matt Jansen's men make the short trip to the south of Manchester on Saturday afternoon as they return to Vanarama National League North action against Stockport County.

A significant change in starting XI is expected after the Magpies' extended squad dispatched Colne from the Lancashire FA Partners Foundation Challenge Trophy on Tuesday evening, writes Alex Birch. Both sides find themselves sitting just outside the play-off places, with Chorley one place (8th) and one point (26) ahead of their hosts as the season moves towards the halfway stage.

Recent meetings: Chorley have won four of six matches against their hosts in the sixth tier since gaining promotion from the Northern Premier League in 2014. The teams last met in March when 4,073 witnessed a 0-0 draw at Edgeley Park.

Goals galore: The Hatters are the National League North's highest scorers at home with 22 goals in nine games.

Mean defence: Chorley have conceded nine league goals in their eight away matches, and only three in their last five.

Marksman: The 2016/17 Welsh Premier League's golden boot winner Jason Oswell leads the National League North scoring charts for Stockport with 14 goals in 17 games.

Key stats: The Magpies are unbeaten in three league visits to Edgeley Park. County have won one of their last four home games.
