TEAM NEWS

Definitely out for Reds are Lanre Oyebanjo and Gavin Tomlin as well as the suspended Gwion Edwards, who completes a three-match ban.

The fitness of Matt Harrold (hamstring) and Joe McNerney (knee) will all be assessed pre-match.

Stanley have no new injury worries.


THE FORM GUIDE                

Reds have lost their last three games and are yet to win at home this season.

Stanley's 4-2 win over Exeter last Saturday lifted them to fifth in the table and they have only lost once in the league so far.


VIEW FROM THE BENCH

: "(Accrington manager) John Coleman has got them playing really well and it's going to be a very tough game for us. But we're at home and we're looking for a back to basics performance. We need to get back to how we were playing a few weeks ago when we were hard to beat."Mark Yates


WE’VE MET BEFORE?

This will be the seventh meeting between the sides but only the third in the Football League. Hope Akpan got our equaliser the last time the teams met here in October 2011 in a 1-1 draw. Then, on the final day of that season, Scott Neilson's second half winner secured promotion from League Two for Reds after they triumphed 1-0 at the Crown Ground.
