City travel to Edgeley park where they have failed to win there in three league attempts
No Quote's available on the game.
Stockport will probably field their new striker Pistol Pete Thompson who was signed from Linfield last week. There is no other news concerning any major injury worries so I expect a full squad for the Hatters today.
Pete is stepping into the shadows left by Liam Dickinson and I am sure that Jim Gannon has found an able replacement in Pete.
Tal Ben Haim should be making his debut today and I expect there will be a few changes from Thursday night's UEFA game at Oakwell because most players played ninety minutes and Mark Hughes will not want to over exert his players at this stage of the pre-season. So I expect Ched Evans to be one of the starters with Kelvin Etuhu and Didi Hamann.
The welsh wonderkid will cause the Stockport defence a lot of problems.
City have played three league games at Edgeley park and have drawn one and lost two. So perhaps it is just one of those grounds that City is destined never to do well at; but under a new regime of Mark Hughes, things might be different but I will not hold my breath.
The referee has not been publicly announced.
City to play well, but County to cause problems as well and so a repeat of the 1999/2000 league result is likely. SCFC 2 - 2 MCFC.
Celtic away on Wednesday 6th Aug at 7:45pm kick off on Setanta.
