Away Days: Stockport County vs Stevenage

17 February 2023

Jim Steele

Stevenage embark on a 180-mile trip to Edgeley Park tomorrow for a tough test against Dave Challinor’s promotion chasing Stockport County…

Stevenage are unbeaten away from home in league matches since September and have drawn their last six away outings in the league. The side sit second in Sky Bet League Two, five points clear of fourth place with a game in hand.

Earlier this week, Boro picked up yet another point on the road through goals from Luke Norris and Jordan Roberts in South Wales.


After winning The National League title at the end of last season and returning to The Football League, Stockport County became instant favourites for the Sky Bet League Two ahead of this campaign. Despite a quiet start to life in League Two, The Hatters soon found their predicted form and surged up the table. They now find themselves seventh in League Two after picking up an impressive twelve wins from their last nineteen league matches.

The Hatters have won their last three league games with the most recent coming earlier this week. Stockport welcomed Crawley Town to Edgeley Park and picked up a 2-1 victory thanks to a Kyle Wootton brace. Wootton is Stockport’s top scorer this season with eleven goals to his name.

Dave Challinor arrived as Stockport boss in November 2021 with the club ninth in The National League. He then guided his side to the title in May and returned Stockport County to The Football League. Challinor will undoubtedly look for back-to-back promotions and lead his side to Sky Bet League One.


Stevenage have met Stockport on just four occasions in the past and are yet to fall short to their Greater Manchester opponents. The very first encounter between the sides was in the 2003/04 FA Cup as non-League Boro knocked out Second Division (League One) Stockport through Dino Maamria’s brace.

The two clubs met once again in the 2010/11 League Two campaign as Stevenage won the home encounter 3-1 and drew the away fixture 2-2. Current Boro man Michael Bostwick appeared in both of those fixtures and even scored in the 3-1 victory.

This season’s reverse fixture ended 2-1 at The Lamex Stadium thanks to two late goals from Luke Norris and Jamie Reid.


Edgeley Park was built in 1891 and has been home to Stockport County since 1902. The ground holds a capacity of 10,841 and a record attendance of 27,833 was set in 1950 as Liverpool arrived at Edgeley Park for an FA Cup clash.

Away supporters are typically housed in The Railway End.


Robert Madden has been appointed Match Referee for tomorrow’s fixture with David Avent and Matthew Parry as Assistants and Sebastian Stockbridge as Fourth Official.

Madden has officiated in Europa League, Champions League and International matches in the past. This season, he has dished out fifty-eight yellow cards and four reds in twenty matches.

Match Reports

Report: Stockport County 2-0 Stevenage

18 February 2023

Stevenage fall to defeat at Edgeley Park...

Boro looked for their first away victory in the league since October, having drawn their last six encounters on the road. Steve Evans made four changes from Tuesday’s 2-2 draw with Newport as Toby Savin, on an emergency loan, and Josh Reid made their Stevenage debuts in place of Jokull Andresson and Max Clark.

Jake Forster-Caskey and Danny Rose returned to the starting eleven with Jonathan Tomkinson missing out and Jamie Reid dropping to the bench. Michael Bostwick sat between Carl Piergianni and Dan Sweeney to make up a formidable back three.

The new man between the sticks was called into action after ten minutes as quick forward Isaac Olaofe burst past Carl Piergianni inside the area, but Toby Savin was quick off his line to collect the ball before Olaofe got his shot off.

Stockport looked to pile men forward early doors in the hopes of an opening goal. Midfielder Callum Camps tried his luck from outside the box after fifteen minutes, but Savin caught it with ease.

Stevenage were forced to wait twenty-three minutes for their first real attempt on goal. Jordan Roberts beat his man before cutting onto his favoured left foot and striking powerfully into the goalkeeper’s hands.

Boro enjoyed an entertaining period in possession soon after and were patiently waiting for an opening. Carl Piergianni played a beautiful diagonal pass to Danny Rose at the back post who looked to head it inside the area to Luke Norris, but Stockport keeper Ben Hinchliffe got there first.

Stevenage had the ball in the back of the net after thirty minutes when Jordan Roberts played it in to Luke Norris who tapped it past the goalkeeper, but the linesman’s flag was raised for offside.

Just a few moments later though, Stockport took the lead. Myles Hippolyte raced down the left-hand side of the box before squaring it to Will Colllar who placed it past the debuting keeper to give his side a one-goal advantage.

The Hatters were not going to stop there as they aimed to double their lead. Callum Camps’ low driven ball into the box fortunately flew past every attacker and the danger was cleared.

Eventually, the first half came to an end, and it was time for Stevenage to regroup and go again. Ahead of the second half, Evans made three changes with Jake Taylor, Jake Reeves and Jamie Reid being introduced in place of Michael Bostwick, Jake Forster-Caskey and Danny Rose.

Early in the second half, there was a stoppage in play as Kyle Knoyle and Josh Reid went down after a head collision. Eventually, Stockport’s Knoyle was helped up and deemed able to carry on as the match resumed.

Jordan Roberts carried the ball well down the right-hand side before the hour mark and tried his luck from a tight angle, but Ben Hinchliffe denied.

Stevenage were creating the more dangerous chances in the second half as they searched for a vital equaliser. Jamie Reid crossed it into the box as Luke Norris’ header was denied, before Jake Reeves and Jordan Roberts both had attempts on goal from outside the area with neither troubling the keeper.

Jake Taylor decided it was his turn to have an attempt on goal moments after, with his effort forcing Ben Hinchliffe to stretch low across his goal to deny.

With over five minutes of the ninety remaining, Steve Evans made another substitution as Daryl Horgan replaced Alex Gilbey in midfield. Horgan was quickly involved as he sent a curling ball into the box, but no one was able to attack it.

Boro were handed an enormous let-off soon after as Kyle Wooton was sent through on goal with just the keeper to beat. Hearts were in mouths as Wooton placed it the wrong side of the near post. Josh March then replaced Jordan Roberts in Boro’s final change. Nine minutes of added time were to be played.

There was one final goal left in the game, and it went in favour of the hosts. Toby Savin’s clearance fell to Will Collar with acres of space to run into. Once he reached Boro’s box, he squared it to Ryan Rydel who fired home to give Stockport their second of the afternoon and ultimately all three points.

Stevenage return to The Lamex next Saturday as they welcome Tranmere Rovers.

Attendance: 9,412 including 270 away supporters.
