Two old foes of the National League will meet for the first time in League Two this weekend with Wrexham set to head for to Edgeley Park for the first battle between these two since a memorable league title race in non-league.
County had the last laugh that day when they went head-to-head in the title race with Wrexham as they edged them out by four points in the end of a historic title race. Stockport followed this up with a route to the League Two playoffs final the year after, but once again, they head into this game having experienced a rough start to life in the fourth tier.
Last season when Wrexham were establishing themselves as the primary team in the National League, County were struggling until around November in League Two. Eventually, the club turned things around and fans will be hoping this is the game they can turn things around.
The club are, however, on a two-game winning run after a victory over MK Dons last time out saw Nick Powell get back amongst the goals after another finish from County's star man this season, Louie Barry.
Stockport also defeated Wimbledon before this, as they managed to put together a late smash-and-grab with a goal from Barry in the second half before Will Collar got a goal to get all three points in a comeback win.
The Greater Manchester side's last defeat was in a 3-2 away loss against Mansfield Town, as they have also managed to draw with Crawley Town in September to at least put them on an unbeaten run this month.
As for Wrexham, they head into this game in sensational form after losing their first match of the season. The club have now put together a run of four games where they have let in just one goal and won them all. The club managed to beat Grimsby Town last time out with a finish from Ollie Palmer, William Boyle and Elliot Lee.
Before this, Wrexham also beat Doncaster Rover, Newcastle Unite U21s and Tranmere. Their only other dropped points in the past month have seen them draw away to Barrow after that famous 5-5 clash with Swindon Town that has gone down as one of the games of the century. The Welsh side are now all the way up in fourth and no doubt established themselves as one of the teams to watch in the EFL after previously being the favourites to win the league.
