Aldershot are without Danny Hylton as they look to continue their revival in form.

Dean Holdsworth's side have lost just two of their last 10 matches in all competitions and reached the fourth round of the FA Cup for the first time in the club's history with a 3-1 win against Rotherham last weekend.

But the Shots return to league action without hat-trick hero Hylton, who received a straight red-card after completing his treble against the Millers.

The striker is sidelined for three games and is expected to be replaced by Dani Lopez, who was cup-tied at the weekend after appearing for parent club Stevenage in an earlier round.

Holdsworth signed midfielder Anthony McNamee on a short-term deal on Thursday and he will go straight into the squad.

Namibia international midfielder Oliver Risser could make his debut after signing for the club earlier in the week, following his release from Swindon.

Accrington striker Padraig Amond is an injury doubt for the trip.

Amond hobbled off shortly before half-time during last week's defeat to Dagenham and is suffering with a groin problem.

One man who will be involved up front for Stanley is former England striker James Beattie, who this week extended his player coach deal at the Crown Ground until the end of the season.

Boss Leam Richardson has no other injury worries but faces concerns over the goalkeeping position.

Youth team rookie Andrew Dawber could be handed a first league start between the posts after Cameron Belford returned to Bury at the end of his emergency loan spell. Regular number one Ian Dunbavin (shoulder) is sidelined for the rest of the season.

Richardson could look to bring Paul Rachubka back from Leeds for a second loan spell but now faces a race against time.
