Billy Kee is relishing the opportunity for Stanley to show what they are capable of in their clash with Portsmouth at the Wham Stadium tomorrow.
Fourth take on first in East Lancashire tomorrow, with John Coleman’s side eight points behind the League One leaders as they look to stay in the Play-Offs.
Kee, who has six league goals to his name so far this term, says he cannot wait for the 3pm kick-off.
“We’ve got the opportunity to grab six points from a difficult three games, and that’s our aim but you know what the gaffer is like – he wanted all nine points,” said the 27-year-old striker.
“We have got to kick on and go and beat top of the league tomorrow, and if we can do that we’ll be in a great position so that’s our aim now – go and beat Portsmouth.
“They are travelling a long way to come and play us at our ground, on our pitch, and we’ll show them what we’re about and see if they like it.
“We’re confident and we don’t fear anybody, plus we’re at home so if we win it’s Winner’s Hour afterwards, so you’ll get an extra 20% out of me and Sean McConville!”
The Stanley striker admits that Tuesday’s result against Luton was a bit of an eye-opener, but says that ultimately the players will benefit from it.
“The Luton result has kept us on our toes, perhaps given us a kick up the backside and it keeps you grounded as players,” said Kee.
“Everyone gets carried away sometimes, especially after having that taste of winning the league last season and the start that we’ve had, but we’ve settled down.
“There was some good bits of play on Tuesday. Daniel Barlaser was hitting those laser diagonals like he does, and it was pleasing that Ozzy [Offrande Zanzala] got another goal.
“We’ve got to take the positives out of it as much as we can because at the end of the day we’re still fourth.
“We have had a hard few days training, we are doing all our preparation, and hopefully we will come away with all three points and enjoy Winner’s Hour!”
