Stockport County v Hartlepool United Betting Tips – National League, 9th October 19.45pm

Jim Gannon’s Stockport County and Craig Hignett’s Hartlepool United meet in the National League on Wednesday night. The Pools will be without their manager in the dugout, as Hignett is serving the first match of a two-game suspension from the FA following a disciplinary hearing. These two are very close in the table, with only two points separating the pair. Who will come out on top at Edgeley Park on Wednesday?

Stockport County News and Form – Can the Hatters secure a much-needed three points?

Stockport County go into Wednesday’s clash in abysmal form. Before drawing with Sutton United last time out, County had lost five National League games in a row. Prior to that run of defeats, Stockport had won five of six.

Jim Gannon’s men have blown hot and cold at Edgeley Park this season. The club from Greater Manchester have won four and lost three of their opening seven National League home games. Since beating Fylde 2-1 on September 3rd, which was their last league win, Stockport have fallen to back-to-back home defeats, losing to Aldershot and Torquay United.


Both teams to score

Last weekend’s draw with Sutton stopped a run of five successive defeats, but County could really do with a win having not tasted a victory in over a month. Can they get back to winning ways on Wednesday?

Key-Facts – Stockport County v Hartlepool United

  • The Hatters have lost five of their last six, picking up one point from a possible 18
  • Hartlepool’s win over Yeovil last time out was their first victory in six
  • The pair are separated by just two points in the National League table


Hartlepool United News and Form – Will the Pools leave Stockport with maximum points?

Hartlepool United went into last Saturday’s home game with Yeovil Town without a win in five league matches (three draws, two defeats). However, they picked up a vital victory at Victoria Park, with goals from Gime Toure and Jason Kennedy giving them a priceless three points, with Kennedy’s winner coming in stoppage time.

The Pools have had a mixed bag of results away from home this season. So far, they have won three, drawn two and lost two of seven away league matches. Along the way, Craig Hignett’s boys have scored six and conceded seven. Last time out on the road, Hartlepool battled to a 1-1 draw at Eastleigh.

Even without Hignett in the dugout, United will fancy their chances of leaving Stockport with all three points in midweek. After last Saturday’s dramatic win over Yeovil, can the Pools make it back-to-back victories in the National League?

Stockport County v Hartlepool United Predictions

Hartlepool United win: It’s been a turbulent season for the Pools, and the recent touchline ban for Hignett will not help their cause. However, Stockport have also really struggled of late, failing to win since September 3rd.

This could be a tight game at Edgeley Park on Wednesday, but my money is going on the away win at 19/10. Meanwhile, County have netted in five of their opening seven home league matches this term. Therefore, have a punt on the away side to win and both teams to score at 9/2.
