Accrington boss John Coleman could be tempted into making changes when his side host Macclesfield.

Stanley were defeated 3-0 by Notts County on Saturday and their push for a play-off place has hit the buffers in recent weeks.

Chris Turner produced an impressive cameo in the second half against County and he may be rewarded with a start on the wing, possibly in place of Luke Joyce.

John Mullin made his first appearance of the season against Steve Cotterill's men following a troublesome ankle injury and although he is not expected to start, he should be included in the matchday squad.

Coleman has no fresh injury or suspension concerns to contend with, but Alan Burton and Leam Richardson are still a few weeks away from a return to action as they continue to battle against their respective ankle and groin injuries.

Macclesfield again look set to be without a trio of players.

Midfielder Izak Reid sustained an ankle injury in last week's 1-0 defeat at Notts County and subsequently missed Saturday's 2-0 win at Hereford.

Left-back Carl Tremarco is still recovering after returning from a hernia problem, while long-term absentee Hamza Bencherif will not play again this season due to an ankle injury.

Silkmen assistant boss Gary Simpson has been placed in charge of the side following the death of Keith Alexander last week and oversaw Saturday's win.

He could land the job on a permanent basis but said: "The people who run this club are good people and I'm sure they will do what is best."
