Harvey Gilmour a doubt as Stockport gear up for West Ham visit

Stockport manager Jim Gannon reported a near clean bill of health ahead of his side’s FA Cup third round clash against West Ham on Monday, with Harvey Gilmour the only doubt.

The 21-year-old midfielder has a slight knee issue, compounded by a knock he suffered in training this week, which places a question mark over his availability for the visit of the Hammers.

However, Gannon insists Gilmour will be given every opportunity to prove his fitness.

Gannon revealed his County players and staff had coronavirus tests on Friday and while no one has reported any symptoms, he is keeping his fingers crossed they will all be cleared.

West Ham will be without striker Sebastien Haller and winger Robert Snodgrass, both of whom have left the club.

It was revealed on Friday morning that Haller had joined Ajax in a deal reported by the Dutch club to be worth a record 22.5million euros (£20.2m), while Snodgrass has joined West Brom on an 18-month deal.

Michail Antonio has come off the bench in West Ham’s last two Premier League matches after a month on the sidelines with a hamstring injury, so the forward could be pushing for a starting role against the National League side.

Goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski looks set to miss out with a thigh injury, Ryan Fredericks is self-isolating after testing positive for Covid-19, while fellow full-back Arthur Masuaku is sidelined following knee surgery.
