Stockport County Team News

Stockport is promoted from the National League last season as a champion. Over a decade ago they were in the third tier of English football but they slipped to the sixth tier. Firstly they were promoted to the fifth tier in 2019 and this year to League Two (the fourth tier).

One of the crucial moments in recent history happened at the beginning of 2020 when wealthy owner Mark Stott buy the club. He cleared all the debts and start to invest a lot of money in the players. Stockport have had a very strong squad last season in the National League and this season in League Two the situation is no different.

Before the season started, Stockport was one of the favorites for the title and promotion to League One. But they started the season very slowly and currently, they are 16th with 18 points. They have had two wins after nine games but since then they improve their results. Stockport is in the run of three consecutive wins and four wins in the last five games in all competitions. They kept three consecutive clean sheets.

There is room for improvement in every aspect of the team but it seems that Stockport is going forward in the last couple of weeks. The schedule is very optimistic in the next few games and the average league position for their opponents in the next eight games is 15,4.  

Sutton United Team News

Sutton was also promoted from the National League in 2021 as a champion. This club has meteoric rise in the last couple of years. Ten years ago they played in the seventh tier of English football. Last season in League Two, Sutton was one of the major surprises in the division. They were relegation candidates before the season started and they finished the season in amazing 8th place with only one point behind sixth and seventh on the table.

But this season Sutton is much weaker because some great players leave the club. Two of the three top scorers leave the club. They don’t have luck with injuries, especially in defence, and with all that problems Sutton is currently in 15th place on the table which is good.

Sutton is in a terrible run of results. They won only one game from the last seven and they are one of the worst away-from-home sides in the division with only one win and five points won. They failed to score in 50% of away games this season (4/8).

H2H

From 2019 to 2021 they played four times in the National League. Three games were finished with a draw and Sutton has one victory. All four games ended with under 2.5 goals.

Team News and Injuries

Stockport County: Macauley Southam and Connor Lemonheigh-Evans are injured.

Sutton United: Craig Eastmond and Louis John are questionable. Aaron Pierre, Ben Goodliffe, and Alistair Smith are injured.

Stockport County vs. Sutton United Prediction

These clubs are in 16th and 15th place in the table but the difference is that Stockport’s form is better and better and they are climbing on the table and Sutton’s form is not great at the moment and they slipping on the table.

Stockport has one of the strongest squads in League Two and they have momentum on their side for this game. Sutton is also a terrible away-from-home team and in our opinion, Stockport has a great opportunity to keep a good run going.
