THAT’S WHAT HE SAID
We’ve had some good battles with Stockport and I’m sure Saturday will be no different. We picked up a really good win in September and we have a good record at Edgeley Park, so we’ll go there with a certain amount of confidence, backed by our recent run of three wins in four. We’re a match for anyone in this division, as we proved at Barrow a couple of weeks ago, and I’m sure we’ll give another good account of ourselves – Jamie Vermiglio
