Accrington Stanley Vs Aldershot Town, Sat 1 Oct 2011

Published Add your comment

Accrington will entertain Aldershot without injured defender Kern Miller and suspended midfielder Nat Taylor.

Miller, currently on a six-month loan from Barnsley, played Stanley's first three games of the season but has not featured in manager John Coleman's squad since.

Taylor is still sidelined as he is serving a 35-day ban, which he received after being sent off for Accrington and Rossendale College last season before he had signed a professional contract.

Coleman has no other injury or suspension concerns but may consider making some changes as his side have not won in their last four outings.

The XI he fielded in their last game against Oxford featured just one change, with Ian Craney coming in, and he will hope he did enough to retain his place.

Bruno Andrade could make his Aldershot debut.

The Portuguese winger, 17, arrived at the club on Thursday having penned a one-month loan deal from Premier League side QPR.

Jordan Brown has also extended his loan stay ahead of the clash and is set to battle it out with Anthony Straker for the left-back slot should the latter pass a fitness test.

Straker has missed Shots' last two games with a knee injury but is hoping to return to contention at the Crown Ground.

Manager Dean Holdsworth has slight doubts over Aaron Morris and Adam Mekki, who have both picked up knocks.

Midfielder Anthony Pulis recovered from a foot problem to be named on the bench for last weekend`s 1-0 home defeat to Crawley, a result which ended an eight-match unbeaten sequence.
