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

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
