Accrington boss John Coleman still has a doubt over Terry Gornell ahead of the home clash with Hereford.

The 21-year-old striker, who missed the 1-1 draw with Aldershot at the weekend with a knee wound which required six stitches, has resumed training but it is unclear whether or not he will make the matchday squad.

However, even if Gornell does recover in time, his inclusion is not guaranteed following his replacement, Rory Boulding's goal against the Shots.

Defender Leam Richardson has also resumed training after missing the last 10 matches with a groin problem, but he is unlikely to be risked against the Bulls.

Coleman has no other injury or suspension problems to worry about.

Defender Kevin Long, midfielders Ray Putterill and Charlie Barnett and striker Craig Lindfield are all available for recalls should Coleman want to freshen things up.

Hereford boss Jamie Pitman has no fresh injury or suspension concerns.

The Bulls got through Sunday's 1-0 win over Crewe without picking up any new problems and Pitman is likely to face Stanley with the same squad.

New loan signing Jason Price, who has already represented Carlisle, Bradford and Walsall this season, could be handed his debut after being an unused substitute against Crewe

However, the 33-year-old forward may have to step off the bench for his first appearance due to Stuart Fleetwood's match-winning strike against the Railwaymen.

Joe Colbeck, who returned from suspension for the win, is expected to continue in midfield at the expense of Rob Purdie.

Long-term absentees, goalkeeper Dan Connor and defender Ryan Valentine (both hip), are still missing.
