JOHN Coleman will be hoping that an illness that has swept through his Accrington Stanley side, will not effect his selection choices for a second successive game.

Stanley were forced into four changes for Saturday’s 3-1 defeat away at Dagenham and Redbridge due to illness.

Coleman said that he would have made further changes after three defeats on the bounce but was restricted because of the number of unavailable players.

“We would have made more if we`d had the personnel available but we had a bout of sickness at the club,” said Coley speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph.

Darran Kempson was forced to settle for a place amongst the substitutes as he nurses a groin strain and goalkeeper Dean Bouzanis was also forced onto the bench through illness.

“Dean Bouzanis has been under the weather as well so that gave Ian Dunbavin another opportunity to stake a claim and unfortunately he`s let another soft goal in.

“The third goal Bav should save.

“But what do you do? Do you change the keeper for Monday and then the chances are that keeper can make a mistake?”

John Miles, Gary King and onloan Everton defender Jay McCarten were the other three players feeling under the weather and missed the trip completely. All three could be back in contention for this afternoons visit of Grimsby Town.

Leam Richardson and Michael Symes also return for the game.
