Our season review moves onto September, as County looked to build on the OK start they had made in August.

Mansfield Town 4-2 Stockport County
Stockport County made a horror start to September, perhaps Jim Gannon forgot to say his three rabbits when waking up or something.

A trip to Mansfield on the 1st September resulted in a spanking.

Mansfield Town were 4-0 up after half an hour, and although Adam Proudlock scored twice in the space of the next ten minutes to make it 4-2 at half time, County couldn`t find another.

The less said about that the better!

Stockport County 1-1 Shrewsbury Town
County played hosts to Shrewsbury in the next game of the season. It was sure to be an interesting game after both sides were in the list of teams that you would have thought were battling it out for promotion.

County again fell behind, but Proudlock pulled County level and County kept their unbeaten home record intact.

Grimsby Town 1-1 Stockport County
Grimsby away was one of the places County got their good run off to in the previous season after a Keith Briggs wonder-goal at about the same point last season.

County took the lead through Matty McNeil, Paul Bolland got the equaliser for the men who like to fish just after half-time.

Stockport County 2-1 Wrexham
Wrexham at home was the game last season that kicked County`s good start off, Grimsby followed it the week after. It was the opposite way around this year, but many people were saying on the day that if it had been a good side County would have been leathered.

There was no team work, County were hoofing it, and it was one of the worst performances we have seen at Edgeley Park for a long time – but we still won.

Marc Williams headed home to make it 1-0 to Wrexham, goals from Elding and Blizzard ensured County came from behind to pick up a 2-1 win.

Brentford 1-3 Stockport County
To be honest though, it was two totally different teams. Away from home County were playing like Arsenal, at home County weren`t playing like Arsenal.

A fantastic Anthony Elding hat-trick, although two were penalties, gave County a 3-1 win and the first away win off the season.

After eight games and two months, County found themselves tickling the edge of the play-offs, eighth place was the place for County – how would October pan out? Find out tomorrow!
