Stockport County has been out to prove themselves in pre-season friendlies and their game against Guiseley will be no different. The Football Manc Cave looks at two players who should get a look in on Saturday.
Their pre-season games have shown nothing but one-sided wins. They won 8-0 against Cheadle, 10-0 against Stockport Town and 2-0 against Curzon Ashton. Ahead of their Saturday fixture, we are picking out two players who deserve a chance. The starting line ups against Curzon Ashton and Stockport Town were exactly the same apart from the change from Connor Dimaio to Alex Curran.
Pre-season is the chance for players to show that they’re capable of being a part of the squad. It also gives fans and management insight of who should be given a chance in the league. Now that the Hatters have proven themselves in their opening games and won all three so far, maybe Jim Gannon should give someone else a chance to shine…
Stockport’s keeper, Ben Hinchliffe has started their past two preseason games so far, Ormson started their game against Cheadle but has been benched since. Yes, it’s a good way to get him warmed up, however, these games should give everyone a chance. This is why I think Ian Ormson could be given a chance in goal against Guiseley.
Bell has made appearances in the past two games, only he didn’t start either match. Against Cheadle, he wasn’t even considered as a substitute. He managed to score twice in their friendly against Stockport Town which saw them win 10-0. Even though he’s already had a chance to show what he’s worth, he should get given a chance to start this game.
