STOCKPORT County are expected to be backed by a 2,000-strong following tomorrow for the clash at Accrington.
County are on a roll, occupying the last play-off spot, and are expecting plenty of fans to make the short distance to the FES.
This should boost the Reds’ home attendances which have been hovering around the 1,200 mark recently.
And Edgeley Park boss Jim Gannon has admitted he been shocked by Stanley’s recent slump in form. They have lost seven of their last nine games and are in 17th place in the league.
Gannon said: "I have been surprised that Accrington have lost as many games as they have recently.
"They are a spirited, hard-working and very capable side, who just seem to be in a bit of limbo at present.
"They are too good for relegation. It will still be a good, tough test for us."
The Reds then take on Brentford at home on Tuesday night at home. The play-off chasing Bees beat Stanley 3-1 at Griffin Park last weekend to extend their unbeaten run to nine games.
"We are a young side and there are things we can improve on from Saturday but it is the win that counts," said boss Andy Scott. "It will be tough going there but it is always a nice journey back if you win."
This is a re-arranged game as their January clash was called off because of a waterlogged pitch, 90 minutes before kick off.
