MOORS boss Marcus Bignot is hoping his side can end a third consecutive month unbeaten when they host Stockport this Saturday.

It is 15 years since Stockport began a slide which has seen them drop from the Football league Championship to the National North and the hold the dubious honour of being the only club to have dropped so far from the second tier of English Football.

All this from a club which under the management of Gary Megson finished in 1998 just two places off a play off position into the Premier League.

In Moors’ first season in the same league, they took five points in their two games against the Hatters drawing the away match in front of almost 2,400 fans at Edgeley Park. Last season it was an exact reversal as Stockport won at home and drew at the Automated Technology Group Stadium.

The Hatters currently sit two points behind Moors in fifth place in the National League but have played two games more.

Like Moors they are out of the FA Cup having been beaten away at AFC Fylde by the solitary goal but they have only lost one game away from home this season having won four and drawn two and on their travels and have amassed 14 points.

“Saturday gives us the chance to end our third consecutive month unbeaten,” said Bignot.

“The absence of a match last week end was an opportunity to recoup after some of our injury doubts and also give vital minutes to those needing them through a training game.

“However I will be surprised if Stockport are not there or thereabouts for promotion come the end of the season and their visit to the Automated Technology Group Stadium will be another test for our players.”

Admission to Saturday’s match, which kicks off at 3pm, costs just £10 for adults, £5 for concessions and 12 to 15-year-olds. Those under-12 get free admission when accompanied by a paying adult.

The admission cost includes the seating areas with no supplement payable. Season Ticket holders from Villa, Blues, West Brom, Coventry and Walsall can come to our game half price.
