Stockport County 1-0 Solihull – Match Report


Scott Spencer was the County hero with the only goal of the game earning Stockport County back to back victories repeating last weekend’s 1-0 win over Brackley Town. 

Despite the majority of possession in a goalless first half, Stockport failed to test Tony Breeden in the Solihull goal with Greg Wilkinson, Chris Churchman and Richie Baker all shooting wide of the target. 

While at the other end Omar Bogle beat the offside trap from a Owen Story through-ball before tripping over his own feet when finding himself one on one with Danny Hurst. 

Solihull started the second half brightly and the closest they came was through goalkeeper Breeden, who after rushing out of his box to clear the danger had Danny Hurst scrambling back, only to see his counterpart’s clearance sail narrowly over the crossbar.  

Spencer scores the only goal of the game.

The only goal of the game came as we approached 20 minutes to go. Danny Glover latched on to a Wilkinson throughball before rounding Breeden and squaring the ball to Spencer who smashed the ball home from 6 yards out before celebrating bare chested in-front of the delirious fans in the Cheadle End.

Bogle had a glorious chanced to equalise just minutes later after finding himself unmarked in the six yard box, however he could only guide his header over the bar leaving County to take all 3 points. 

Bare chested Spencer celebrates with County teammates.
