Recent respective form guides

Stockport County's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Hatters have scored 6, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Norwich City's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occasions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The Canaries's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 7 goals for and 5 against.

Stockport Co. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 14 points from 14 matches. Norwich City's total of 22 points from their 14 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Coca-Cola League One.
