Town have sold out their allocation for the visit to Stockport County on Saturday afternoon in which both sides will be looking to get their play-off ambitions back on track.Stockport County V Town: Match Preview

Town lost 3-1 to Crewe at Gresty Road while Stockport beat Carlisle United last Saturday but lost their game in hand 1-0 to Colchester United on Tuesday night.

County's manager Jim Gannon was allowed to talk to fellow League One club Brighton to fill their managerial position.
Gannon has since turned down the move in favour to stay at Edgeley Park but he told BBC Radio Manchester this week that his job had become "untenable" and it unclear whether the Irishman will stay at the club.
Gannon was a former player making over 400 appearances for the club and was given the nickname "ghost" due to his ability of making timing runs into the box to nick a goal.

The reason Gannon could be unhappy at Edgeley Park is due to the fact County have had to sell key players to balance the books.
Jim McNulty was sold to Brighton for £150,000 where as Town picked up Anthony Pilkington for an undisclosed fee.

County's captain Michael Raynes is back to face Town but are without Peter Thompson and Carl Baker through injury.
Matty Mainwaring is pushing for a place as is new signing striker Oli Johnson from minnows Miners Welfare. On-loan Oldham striker Chris O'Grady could start up front with Matty McNeil.

Town have former County star Anthony Pilkington back from illness and could be in the starting line-up.
Danny Cadamarteri is back from injury but is doubtful to be in the starting eleven.
Matt Glennon is out for the rest of the season with a knee operation so goalkeeper Simon Eastwood has been recalled from Woking to sit on the Town bench.
Town are still waiting for clearance on French striker Jonathan Tehoue.

Sean's Prediction Stockport can score goals but are also conceeding them, most of their goals coming after 85 minutes when Town seem to switch off in the second half. I'm going stick my neck out and say another 3-2!
