STANLEY'S home woes continued as defeat to high-flying Stockport left them just two points off the relegation spots.
The Fraser Eagle Stadium was a fortress last season and helped Stanley win the Conference title at a canter.
But they have now won just one of their last nine home games and turned in a poor performance against County, who made it seven wins - and seven clean sheets - on the trot.
And boss John Coleman took the blame for the defeat after starting with 3-5-2 formation - and having to switch to 4-4-2 after the break when Adam Griffin had already slotted home what turned out to be the winner.
"I have got to take the responsibility. I'm to blame for that defeat - I picked the wrong formation," said the Reds chief.
He did have every reason to be confident that using wing backs would work after Stanley picked up all three points at Barnet last week with the same tactics.
But this time County ran the show and the Reds struggled, failing to create hardly any scoring opportunities.
Instead they had to clear efforts off the line and try and keep County at bay - but Stockport counter-attacked and Griffin finished well on the stroke of half-time to seal all three points.
