Accrington is in a middle table position, but comes from two consecutive losses and in the first days of winter market already loose three players, two of them strong starters, regular keeper Ripley returned to Preston ( second choice Maxted played only four matches as regular, last one in October), Anderton ( midf.21+2) and Hall ( att.1+13 1g).
More, third scorer Zanzala ( 4g) and Brown ( midf.11+7) remain suspended and right back Johnson ( 26) is doubtful and with Preston interested in him he could be not risked if not necessary.
Bristol Rovers if fifth from bottom, but had a big improvement recently with three wins and a draw.
They are not bad far from home ( 4-3-6 14/13) and for this match they should have no particular problems in spite of illness that affected the squad, but only a couple of players are uncertain. No relevant players left the team till now.
