Loan recruits boost County
Stockport caretaker boss Peter Ward has been boosted by the arrival of four new loan signings ahead of the home clash with Gillingham.
Striker Anthony Elding has joined the npower League Two strugglers on loan from Rochdale until end of season.
Elding scored 26 goals in 52 appearances during his previous spell with County before joining Leeds in 2008.
Blackpool duo Ishmel Demontagnac and Stephen Husband have arrived from Bloomfield Road on one-month loan deals.
Newcastle defender Matthew Grieve has also agreed a one-month loan, with all four deals subject to Football League and Premier League approval.
Ward will take charge following Paul Simpson`s sacking earlier this week following a run of just three wins in 19 games.
Gillingham manager Andy Hessenthaler may have to rejig his starting line-up for Saturday's encounter.
Hessenthaler is sweating on the fitness of captain Barry Fuller after he pulled up with a groin injury in the warm-up before Monday`s defeat at Wycombe.
That defeat ended a five-match winning streak and Hessenthaler will be hoping Fuller is passed fit as he is his only recognised right-back.
If Fuller is absent, Matt Lawrence could slot into the full-back slot with Simon King earning a recall at centre-half.
Hessenthaler will also check on the fitness of Joe Martin, who picked up a hamstring problem at Wycombe and was forced off before the interval.
Dennis Oli (ankle), Chris Palmer (knee) and Tony Sinclair (foot) also remain doubtful.
Hatters humiliated by Gills
Managerless Stockport's woes continued after they slipped to a 5-1 hammering from a rampant Gillingham side.
Despite the dismissal of the manager Paul Simpson and the introduction of four new loan signings, there was little change at Edgeley Park as County were humiliated.
Cody McDonald opened the scoring for the visitors on 32 minutes following a mistake by Ismael Demontagnac, the Hatters' new loan signing from Blackpool.
The hosts came alive in the ten minutes either side of the break, thanks to the promptings of new skipper Greg Tansey, whose efforts saw Wes Fletcher and Demontagnac just fail to level the scores.
But when Gillingham attacked for the first time in the second half after 51 minutes, the defence was again at fault as McDonald fed Andy Barcham to put the Gills 2-0 up.
When the Gills made it three just five minutes later, McDonald heading home Danny Spiller's cross, it looked all over as a contest.
Demontagnac did pull a goal back for the Hatters on 69 minutes, but from the kick off Curtis Weston dribbled the ball upfield and slotted home the visitors' fourth.
The excellent McDonald then completed his hat-trick on 78 minutes when he headed home substitute Luke Rooney's cross to complete a great afternoon for his team.
