Accrington Stanley take on Stockport County in what should be a tasty Lancashire Derby at the Fraser Eagle Stadium.

Stockport have sold out the away end for the game this afternoon, selling all 1,400 tickets that they were allocated.

Accrington Stanley Team News:

Peter Cavanagh and Danny Ventre could return to the Stanlwy sides after recovering from injuries. Both came through a sub appearance for the Reserves in mid-week.

Andy Tretton and Leighton McGivern both remain sidelined for Stanley though. Portugese defender Almeida is set to make his home debut after impressing last weekend during the 2-1 win at Barnet.

Player to watch: Paul Mullin

Same again! Paul Mullin is simple a danger to opposition in and around the area.

Stockport County Team News:

Stockport expect Tes Bramble to shake off a groin injury and Rob Clare to recover from illness.

Forward Adam Proudlock is fully fit after an ankle problem in the previous week but Keith Briggs, Michael Bowler and Michael Raynes are all out

Player to watch: Dom Blizzard

For Dominic Blizzard, this is the second time of playing Stanley this season. Blizzard featured in the Watford team that Accrington took all the way to penalties in a cup tie earlier this season.

Blizzard is on-loan at Stockport from Premiership side Watfrod until the end of the season.

Match Odds

Accrington – 13/8
Draw – 21/10
County – 11/8

Match Prediction:

I am going with a 2-0 Stanley win.
