Recent respective form guides

Stockport County's woeful home form means they have chalked up just a single victory, with 5 defeats, from the last six. While Hatters have scored 9, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.

Brighton & HA's away form is none too clever either, picking up four victories from the last six. The games have constituted a decent return of 12 goals for the Seagulls, and 9 goals against.

Stockport Co. find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 25 games have yielded only 15 points. Brighton & HA are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 27 points from 25 matches.
