Mansfield Town visit Edgeley Park today to come up against a County team that hasn’t been beaten at home since the end of September.
Since then only Macclesfield have taken any points home from Edgeley Park.
County also come into the game on the back of five straight wins.
The game also marks the return to Edgeley Park of Matty Hamshaw, the ex County captain, and when he played against County in the return fixture in August, Hamshaw got the late equaliser for Mansfield.
Jim Gannon: ‘Mansfield have done well. They’ve made some shrewd signings and the manager has got them going. Their form has been good so it’ll be tough and they’ll be confident coming to Egdeley Park but we’ll be looking forward to it.’
Stockport County Team News:
Tes Bramble will make the bench at best.

Making his debut on loan from Watford, will be trying to prove that he can play in the midfield for County and will eventually go back to Watford in the first team.
Mansfield Town Team News:
Jake Buxton returns from suspension, but Barry Conlon will still miss out with his suspension.

Anybody else? The ex player will probably get booed and will look to prove a point to the County fans and Gannon.
