Our prediction for this League 2 match:
After eliminating Harrogate in the FA Cup round 2, Hartlepool will look to return to winning ways in the League Two as well when they host Stockport County to their Victoria Park. The Pools are stuck at the bottom with only 12 points on their account, but a win over Stockport could see them escape the relegation zone. Defender David Ferguson has overcome his injury, while the opposition back-line should have Joshua Umerah at bay as the 24-year-old forward scored a brace in the last league match.
The Hatters, on the other hand, head into the match following the FA Cup draw with Charlton Athletic. Stockport County are more of a team than Hartlepool, and given their signs of improvement in front of goal, away triumph should be considered. Myles Hippolyte is pushing for a start after coming as a substitute in the FA Cup draw.
