Salford City vs Stockport County match preview

Will Salford City keep alive their hopes of a fifth promotion in nine seasons?

Between 2015 and 2019, the Ammies climbed up from the Northern Premier League, eight-tier, into the EFL, victorious in the National League play-off final in 2019, subsequently stabilising in the fourth-tier.

Despite a 1-0 defeat to Gillingham on Monday, Salford will feature in the League Two play-offs for the very first time, just about ending up above Mansfield Town by virtue of goal difference, +18 compared to +17.

So, Neil Wood’s team are dreaming of promotion but, if they’re going to get to Wembley on 28 May, this first leg feels must win.

Stockport County meanwhile finished fourth, a mere four points above Salford, only missing out on automatic promotion on the final day.

12 months ago, the Hatters were crowned National League champions, so are on the verge of back-to-back promotions, seeking to return to the third-tier for the first time since 2010.

Dave Challinor’s team come into this tie unbeaten in 13, losing only once since 28 January, following an admittedly underwhelming 1-1 draw with already relegated Hartlepool on Monday.

During the season, Stockport won 2-0 at the Peninsula Stadium back in October, before the pair drew 1-1 at Edgeley Park in late-March.

Can Salford make home advantage count in this first leg at Moor Lane?
