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'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
