Fifth-tier Stockport are looking to pull off a shock in the third round of this season's FA Cup when the Hammers visit Edgeley Park this evening.
The two clubs are separated by 86 places in English football’s pyramid and the Hatters will be inspired by sixth-tier Chorley and fourth-tier Crawley delivering two Cupsets over the weekend; beating Derby and Premier League side Leeds, respectively.
West Ham manager David Moyes has said he will field a strong team for the game as he looks to avoid embarrassment on Monday evening, in what will be the Hammers’ first game since New Year’s Day.
Non-league Stockport are currently in the promotion hunt as they seek a return to the Football League after a decade-long absence, sitting fourth with seven wins from their opening 14 matches.
