Tough Accrington Encounter For Mellon

Manager Micky Mellon has said that Accrington Stanley later this evening will be another tough test for us.

The game kicks off at 7.45pm tonight at the Greenhous and Mellon obviously wants to see us continue our fantastic start to the new campaign on home soil, but he knows it will be difficult.

Speaking to the Official Site the gaffer said.

'It's another really tough game. Accrington are always a club with a group of players that fight very hard, so we'll need to be at our best again to try and get something from the game. They have so much spirit and they'll be coming here to try and get a result.'

With the fixture schedule at the moment the gaffer admits that it's always difficult and relentless, so we just have to be as prepared as we can be and ensure we reach our standards and perform well and as long as we tick those boxes he knows we have every chance.

He also hints with it being our fourth game in ten days he is likely to rotate the pack again slightly to try and ensure everybody remains fresh, but ultimately that's why he's built a squad - not a first team XI.

Defender Cameron Gayle was also interviewed ahead of the game, and he pointed out that we'll be aiming to get an early goal against Accrington so we can learn from the mistakes against Tranmere and not have to chase ourselves, but make them chase and then exploit the gaps as they push forward.

'We made it a bit hard for ourselves by scoring in the last minute (Tranmere) but a win is a win, so we go on to Accrington now. If we start putting away our chances, we'll beat teams by three or four but it's going to be another battle.'
