Rodman returns for Shots
Aldershot could have winger Alex Rodman back in his squad for the visit of struggling Stockport.
Rodman has been out of action with a calf injury but has returned to light training and is set to be available for boss Dean Holdsworth.
Striker Damian Spencer played 45 minutes for the reserves in midweek as he returns from a knee injury but he is still some way off a first-team return.
Winger Jermaine McGlashan is dealing with an ongoing shin splints problem but is available, while youth-team graduate Adam Mekki will again be included in the squad.
Forward Jack Randall broke his leg while on loan at Didcot Town recently and is a long-term absentee.
Stockport boss Ray Mathias will be able to call on Anthony Elding for the trip.
The striker missed last weekend`s goalless draw at home to Burton but returns to the squad to face Dean Holdsworth`s men.
Mathias could also be boosted by the return of defenders Mansour Assoumani and Alan Goodall.
The pair have been nursing injuries but County are hopeful they will be available for this weekend`s encounter.
However, Danny Swailes is recovering from a hamstring strain as he works his way back from a long-term absence and fellow defender Danny O'Donnell also remains a long-term casualty.
Southampton striker Ryan Doble has returned to his parent club following the end of his loan spell at Edgeley Park.
Spencer hurts Hatters
Damian Spencer headed a 93rd-minute winner as Aldershot picked up a 1-0 victory and cruelly denied 10-man Stockport a crucial point.
The substitute was introduced in the final 10 minutes after County's Alan Goodall had seen red for a second bookable offence and popped up in the dying seconds to snatch the points.
County were first to threaten when Everton loanee James Wallace fired his eighth-minute free-kick against the wall.
In the 27th minute Adam Griffin's inswinging cross found Anthony Elding but the journeyman striker was ruled offside as he fired at goal.
The Shots finally threatened a minute before the break when Ben Harding found Danny Hylton in the box but his shot was kept out by Jordan Rose.
Five minutes after the restart Wallace's 25-yard curler went just wide as County continued to threaten.
Jermaine McGlashan then sent Tim Sills in but the targetman lost his footing in the box and Danny Hylton fired straight at Ian McLoughlin.
But two minutes later County were up against it when Shots substitute Adam Mekki was clattered by Goodall, who was sent off for his second yellow card.
It was all Aldershot from that moment with Mekki's strong 75th minute run ending with a cross to Peter Vincenti who fired straight at defender Rose.
And the Shots won it when Alex Rodman's cross found Spencer at the back post and he headed past McLoughlin from four yards.
