York are expected to name an unchanged side.

Nigel Worthington's side ended a 16-game winless run with a 2-0 win over Plymouth on Easter Monday, moving the Minstermen to within one point of third-bottom Argyle.

They now face 20th-placed Accrington knowing a win will see them out of the relegation zone.

Worthington has no new injury problems and could opt to name an unchanged side.

Richard Cresswell scored on his home debut on Monday and should continue in attack with fellow goalscorer Ashley Chambers.

Scott Kerr remains sidelined with a calf problem while Jon Challinor will make his return to training next week after breaking his leg.

Loanees Alex Rodman, Michael Rankine and John McGrath will not be involved after returning to their respective parent clubs.

Experienced duo Francis Jeffers and Nicky Hunt remain injury doubts for Accrington.

Striker Jeffers and defender Hunt are both nursing hamstring problems and weekend's showdown may come too soon for them.

Midfielder Amine Linganzi is back in France having gallantly played in both Stanley's Easter fixtures despite the tragic death of his brother

"The lads are desperate to get back in," said boss Leam Richardson of Jeffers and Hunt. "They're round the group all the while. They are still senior players so they are offering good advice to the lads.

"We're monitoring them every day, every week so hopefully they can make a return sharpish.

"With regards to Amine Linganzi he's had a family bereavement so we'll keep an eye on that and see if he's available for the weekend."
