Accrington manager John Coleman has no fresh injury or suspension concerns for his side`s clash with Hereford at the Crown Ground.

Leam Richardson, who has featured just once all season, remains a long-term absentee with a groin problem while midfielder Alan Burton is also out with a groin complaint of his own.

Coleman could still choose to ring the changes after his side were beaten by Port Vale on Tuesday, extending their winless run to seven games.

Stanley are 11th in League Two and, despite flirting with the play-off places earlier in the season, look set for a mid-table finish, although Coleman will still be hoping they can end their recent poor run with a victory over the Bulls.

Hereford are hoping to have Mathieu Manset back in contention.

The French striker missed Tuesday`s 2-1 defeat at Bournemouth with a slight groin strain but could well return at the Crown Ground.

On-loan midfielder Astrit Ajdarevic has sat out the last two games with a hamstring injury and is unlikely to be back in contention this weekend but is nearing a return.

Temporary manager Graham Turner made three changes at Dean Court, although one of which was enforced, in a bid to freshen up his XI and was happy with the way his side started the game before the Cherries got a grip on proceedings.

Yet he may opt to tinker again due to the club`s hectic schedule of late.

The Bulls need one more point to be mathematically certain of avoiding the drop but would also be guaranteed League Two football next season should Grimsby fail to win at home to Torquay.
