John Coleman has some big decisions to make over team selection for Saturday’s trip to second placed Plymouth.
Keeper Marek Rodak has returned from international duty with Slovakia but stand-in keeper Aaron Chapman has kept a clean sheet and impressed between the sticks in his two game absence.
Meanwhile skipper Seamus Conneely is hoping to be back for the trip to Home Park after missing the last two games – a draw and a win – with an ankle injury.
“I have some big decisions to make – how do I change a team which played so well on Tuesday?” said Coleman.
“There are players pushing for a start but it will be difficult. Seamus is integral to what we do and the way we play and I hope he will be available for Saturday.”
Thirteenth-placed Stanley are on an 11-game unbeaten run and Coleman is plotting to extend it at a place which hasn’t been too kind to Accrington.
“We will be going there to win. Last year we played them off the park but didn’t get the result I felt we deserved so hopefully this year we can get the result no matter how we play.
“Plymouth are a good side and will go up this season, I have no doubt about that, but the four teams above us play each other so we have a chance to make some ground on two of them on Saturday.
“The players have now got into the rhythm and go into every game believing they are going to score goals. It means the defence can relax more.
“Plymouth is a big test but the teams we have tended to fluff our lines against are the teams below us.
“We will do our homework on Plymouth but I know, when we play well, we are as good as any team in the league and we do feel our league position is false.”
