Gannon Urges Stockport Players To Raise Their Games

Jim Gannon knows his Stockport County side have to improve if they are to get anything at high-flying Harrogate Town tonight.

County suffered their first defeat in ten games in all competitions on Saturday, losing 3-1 at resurgent Southport.

Stockport sit three points behind the play-off places and the boss wants to see more of his players do the dirty work.

Gannon told Imagine FM: “We’re going to have to dust ourselves down. I think there are some players in the team on their reputation.

“There are others who have worked extremely hard to get in the team and it showed when we were 3-1 behind (at Southport).

“I really learned a lot about a few players whether they can raise their game and really contribute. There were some that didn’t look interested in the fight, the battle and the scrap that we need when we’re chasing games.

“We’ve got to pick the right team for Harrogate. It’s another really tough game and what we can’t afford to have is back-to-back defeats.”
