Stockport County (A) Preview - Season 22/23, Episode 20

United's unbeaten run has come to an end after a controversial refereeing display but despite that defeat, there's still a feeling of positivity around the Blues.

In this episode of The Brunton Bugle, Lee and Mike discuss the 3-2 home defeat to Leyton Orient, including the appalling officiating and United's fighting spirit while playing with ten men.

We also look ahead to the midweek clash at Stockport - United's first trip to Edgeley Park in 13 years. That includes a chat with Russ from the County podcast "The Scarf Bergara Wore", with plenty of chat about their non-league wilderness years, not living up to their expectations as bookies favourites so far and the many links in both squads between the clubs.

No Ex-Files section on this episode (that will return for the Tranmere preview) but there is a quick Loan Watch round-up.

Your host Lee Rooney is in Liverpool and is joined via the wonders of the internet by Mike Booth in Formby.
