Hereford boast a virtually fully-fit squad for the visit of Accrington.

Caretaker boss Jamie Pitman is able to call upon almost every single one of United`s players with the Edgar Street treatment room finally empty bar goalkeeper Dan Connor, who remains a long-term absentee with his hip problem.

Striker Sean Canham return from his one-match ban having missed last weekend`s remarkable 4-3 triumph at Northampton in which the Bulls were 3-0 down at half-time.

Forward Stuart Fleetwood could well have played his way into contention against Stanley having sparked the revival with a brace soon after coming off the bench.

Skipper Janos Kovacs (knee) returned to the bench at Sixfields after his lengthy spell on the sidelines and is again competing for a starting berth.

Striker Sam Malsom, who has struggled for regular first-team opportunities this term, has this week joined non-league Redditch United on loan.

Accrington manager John Coleman is without four suspended players for the trip.

On-loan Burnley defender Kevin Long serves the first of his three-match suspension after he was dismissed just 16 minutes into his Stanley debut against Rotherham last weekend.

And Coleman could make changes to his defence after conceding two late goals against the Millers with Leam Richardson, Peter Murphy and Tom Smyth all ready to deputise.

Ray Putterill starts a two-game ban after he played in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy clash with Tranmere, despite being ineligible.

Andrew Proctor and Jonathan Bateson are out of the trip to Edgar Street as they serve the second of their three-match bans.

Rory Boulding could drop to the bench as Craig Lindfield is pushing for a starting place up front.
