Hatters Next Up

Stockport County are the visitors to the Walkers Stadium this evening in tonight's League One clash.

Nigel Pearson's men gained a vital 2-2 draw at MK Dons on Saturday, which kept them 12 points clear at the top.

Stockport themselves have enjoyed a successful season, finding themselves just outside the play-offs in 8th place.

The two sides have met twice already this season, Leicester winning 1-0 at home in the Carling Cup and drawing 0-0 away.

Vital Quotes:

New signing David Stockdale looks certain to go straight into the first team after being brought in on a one month emergency loan yesterday.

Player to watch: Matty Fryatt

The striker has scored twice in his last two games after a slight barren spell to take his goals tally to 27 for the season. Always seems to be in the right place at the right time.

Stockport County Team News:

Jim Gannon is waiting on the fitness of Johnny Mullins (hamstring) and Dominic Blizzard (blurred vision) ahead of tonight's game.

Player to watch: Tommy Rowe

Highlighted by Stockport's vital editor as their man to watch, Rowe has been slightly off form of late and is due a good performance.

Another two points dropped - six games ago i thought you was sure to break the 100 points mark. Is it a case of taking your foot of the gas?
