The Coasters go into their Vanarama Conference North game at home to Stockport County looking to get back to winning ways after a run of four games without a win.

It’s been a winless month for Fylde that has seen a couple of losses and a more recent league draw away at North Ferriby last Saturday, which was definitely a point gained against a good North Ferriby side in what is always a difficult place to go. 

This game comes at a vital time for both sides, with Stockport in good form of late as they sit just outside the play off places in sixth position although they were defeated in midweek 3-0 against Chorley. County sit 3 points behind The Coasters but also have played two games more.

These two sides have never met in league action before, as most of Stockport’s history has been in the Football League or Conference National,, and this is Fylde’s first season in a league as high as the Conference North.

Tom Eckersley  may be available after his recovery from a long term injury, but Matt Blinkhorn is still likely to be out of contention.

The Coasters have won eight out of their last ten league games and will be looking to add another win to their already impressive collection.  This is the first home league game in around a month for Fylde and they’ll be looking to use home advantage to get a victory under their belts.

A loss in this game could see the Coasters move down a couple of places while a win could send them second in the table. A win for the away side could see them rise as high as fourth, while a loss could see County drop to as low as ninth.

Some well known players in the Stockport ranks include former Aston Villa and Coventry defender Stephen O’Halloran and ex Blackpool, Everton and Fleetwood town man Jamie Milligan.
