John Coleman’s Accrington Stanley will today look to build on their 1-0 win over fellow strugglers Tprquay United, as they host Hereford at the Crown Ground.

Hereford will visit Stanley having never won at the Fraser Eagle, but it also means the continuation of last season’s Conference rivalry.

The Bulls came out on top the last time the two clashed winning 1-0 at home, that came at the end of October. But come 5pm tonight, we are well and truely hoping that them bulls are going home empty handed.

We also welcome Stuart Fleetwood back to the Fraser Eagle Stadium this afternoon. Fleetwood joined Stanley on-loan from Hereford earlier in the season but failed to impress during his one month stay.
