History of the Stockport County v Chesterfield fixture

Chesterfield pack their bags to visit Stockport County at Edgeley Park on Tuesday evening, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 30 out of 46 times.

The previous match played between the two at Edgeley Park was within the last three years, in January 2008, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a League Two match.

Recent respective form guides

Stockport County's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While Hatters have scored 10, a worringly large 22 have been leaked at the other end.
