ALL the pressure will be on visitors Stockport County tomorrow as Bradford Park Avenue host their former Football League rivals.

It is a must-win game for the Hatters as they are two places and four points outside the National League North play-off zone with two games to go and a defeat would mean their season is over.

On the other hand, Avenue are eight points clear of the relegation places and their safety was guaranteed by the 1-1 draw at leaders Fylde on Easter Monday.

Following that key point, Avenue issued a statement confirming that manager Mark Bower and assistant Danny Boshell had signed new contracts.

Following an unbeaten Easter period, albeit with back-to-back draws, Bower said: "It was a good weekend.

"I thought we did well against Tamworth and were probably safe after the win at Alfreton, to be honest, but you can never be sure so it's nice to get it done with two games to spare.

"When we went to Fylde, we said to the players that we didn't just want to limp over the line, so we went for it and came close to winning.

"We'd not drawn a game from September to April, so it was a bit strange that three draws on the trot finally removed all doubt.

"It's also a good thing that we have two big games to finish (Avenue travel to second-placed Kidderminster on the final day of the season) as there's no chance of them drifting away.

"We're going to have to be at it from minute one of both our last fixtures."

Bower has injury worries after two games in three days over the holiday weekend, so he will have to assess his squad ahead of tomorrow's clash.

But he expects whoever steps up to be highly motivated for the last home game of the season in front of a big crowd.

The Avenue boss said: "Emile (Sinclair) pulled up in Saturday's game and Oli (Johnson) came off at Fylde with a hamstring injury, so we need to look at a couple – especially up front – and see where we are.

"We've not been running with a big squad this season but we've got enough quality and the players will be up for it.

"It'll be a big crowd – it's all-ticket and they have sold loads – and it's a game against a massive club that have been in this division too long.

"Stockport's fans will be right behind them, so the atmosphere should be great. We're looking forward to it, as we were last Monday.

"Fylde are champions-elect and their fans were expecting a party but we spoiled it, so let's see if we can put a spanner in Stockport's works."
