Fitness checks for Stockport game

FRANK SINCLAIR is hoping that Chris Noone (ankle) and Jack Truelove (knee) will pass late fitness tests ahead of the New Year’s Day home game against Stockport County (3pm).
International clearance, however, has still not come through from FIFA for 19-year-old striker Jordan Bove, on loan from Oldham Athletic.
The game is not all ticket and admission is by payment at the gate, but with Stockport expecting to bring around 400 supporters with them, fans are advised to get to the ground early.
Despite his side’s injury problems and poor home record the Bay boss remains optimistic they can get something out of the game after a battling 1-1 draw at Edgeley Park on Boxing Day where the Seagulls led for nearly an hour and extended their excellent away record in the league of one defeat in 11 games on the road.
Stockport’s away record is not the best with just two wins in 11 matches, and they also have injury worries with Kristian Dennis, Richie Baker, Matthew Todd, Nathan Woolfe and Jordan Fagbola all likely to miss the game.
