Match preview Vs Accrington Stanley

Date: 10-12-05 Venue: Interlink Express Stadium Kick off: 15:00hrs
Tomorrow our season starts all over again as we try to move on from the news of Stuart Watkiss' dismissal on Wednesday morning.    I think it's fair to say that it came as a bit of a shock to most fans but it had been on the cards for ages following some poor results and that is what a manager is measured by.

Martin O'Connor takes over for this game against the League leaders and, presuming he discounts himself from playing, we should be almost back to full strength.    Simon Russell is still out and Gareth Sheldon is back in training but won't be ready just yet.

Accrington have got themselves to the top of the table by hard graft and a string of excellent results.    Five wins in a row and clean sheets in their last three is something we can only aspire to but it is a game that we should aim to get at least a point from.

Ian Craney is out for the foreseeable future with an injured shoulder but he would have missed the game anyway through suspension after accumulating five yellow cards.    Andy Tretton is on the way back from injury and played in a reserve game during the week, Gary Roberts has a thigh strain but should be fit and young keeper Danny Alcock has a bit of a back problem so will face a late fitness test.

As I said earlier I expect us to go all out for a result of some kind and I think the players should be fired up for this one.    If they're not then they may as well pack their bags and go now.
