Stockport v Grimsby Team News

TOWN look likely to name an unchanged side for Saturday's trip to Stockport where they will be looking to win their third successive league game for the first time since January 2008. One absentee however will be striker Damian Spencer who has picked up a swollen knee during training.

Full back Lee Ridley is also available to the managers after playing in a practice match at Doncaster this week following his recent hamstring injury. However given Town's two wins and two clean sheets in their last two games it is unlikely that Ridley will regain his place immediately, meaning another start for temporary signing Jamie Green.

It's also likely that Town will stick with the 4-4-2 formation which has served them well results-wise in the last two games, although Stockport are likely to prove a tougher test than either Forest Green or Hayes.

The Hatters, in their first season at this level, are the draw specialists of the division and have lost just one game, and drawn six out of their first eight Conference matches. They still have issues off the pitch, with a proposed boardroom takeover falling through this week, but in manager Dietmar Hamann they have an ambitious boss in his first appointment as a manager after finishing his career in a coaching role at MK Dons.

Jon Routledge (cheek bone) and Ryan Fraughan (groin) are both missing for County, who include ex-Mariner Martin Gritton on their books. "Gritts" was signed from Torquay in the summer by Dietmar Hamann.
