Stockport County hosts West Ham in the FA Cup 1/32 finals. The match will be played on Monday, January 11th at Edgeley Park (Stockport).
Stockport County is a modest English club that will be interested in testing its strength against the background of a representative of the elite. In its league, Stockport shows good football and occupies an intermediate fourth place in the standings. This position enables the team to qualify for the promotion. Jim Gannon's charges know how to play strictly from the defense, and it will be the only recipe for them in the upcoming confrontation. Predictably, this team has no football players known to a wide circle of fans. Beyond that, the average age of Stockport’s players (over 26 years old) speaks of weak prospects. Rooney, Reed, Bennett, and Maynard are the leaders of Stockport County.
West Ham sets itself serious tasks in the national cup, where Moyes' players can unlock their good game potential. In the Premier League, it will be difficult for the Hammers to compete with their rivals in the struggle to get into the Europa League zone. The team's game is extremely simplified - constant work on the flanks, strict defense in the own half of the field, and implementation of set pieces. Moyes has a good selection of players at his disposal. Unlocking their potential is a real challenge for the Scottish coach. Under David, real hard workers on the football field (Bowen, Rice, Soucek, Creswell, and Dawson) get more game practice. But technical players like Yarmolenko, Haller, Lancini, and Snodgrass completely lost the confidence of the coach.
Moyes' charges look good in the Premier League, where their rivals are the strongest English clubs. In a rivalry with Stockport, the Hammers’ coaching staff is guaranteed to apply rotation, which should not affect the layout in this pair of opponents. Clubs are at a diametrically opposite level in terms of their staffing and competitive capabilities.
