Stanley claimed an impressive 2-0 win over Micky Adams' promotion chasers early in the season, but a repeat appears unlikely with Leam Richardson's side struggling three points above the relegation zone.

"We had a great start to the season," Reds skipper Joyce said. "We beat Port Vale 2-0 and are one of the few teams to keep a clean sheet against them.

"We can take confidence from that but they've had a really good season so far and we're in our position because that's where we deserve to be at this moment in time.

"So it's going to be a tough game but, for whatever reason, we seem to do quite well against the so-called better teams in our league and some of the results we've picked up against the top six or seven have been encouraging.

"We're going there on a big pitch, will try to get he ball down and play as we like to and hopefully we can get another positive result

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
