Hunt blow for Accrington

Accrington full-back Nicky Hunt will be missing when James Beattie's men aim to prolong their unbeaten run against high-flying Fleetwood at the Crown Ground.

Former Bolton defender Hunt has accrued five cautions this term and will therefore serve an automatic one-game suspension on Tuesday night.

That could leave Beattie depleted in both full-back regions, particularly if Lee Naylor is absent through injury again as he was for Stanley's 2-1 win over Torquay at the weekend.

Another defender, Rob Atkinson (hamstring), is still missing but Beattie has no other new concerns as Accrington bid to avoid defeat for the eighth successive Sky Bet League Two encounter.

Fleetwood boss Graham Alexander has no new injury or suspension concerns.

The Cod Army edged a nine-goal thriller against Mansfield on Saturday when Antoni Sarcevic's stoppage-time penalty completed his hat-trick and settled an enthralling contest 5-4 in Alexander's side's favour.

With four goals conceded Alexander, himself a former defender, may elect to shuffle his pack with Liam Hogan, Junior Brown and Stephen Jordan, now back in full training following a groin injury, among those on standby.

Forward pair David Ball (shoulder) and Jamille Matt (ankle) are sidelined so striker Nathan Tyson will be expected to retain his starting berth while fellow loanee Daniel Carr, borrowed from Huddersfield, is awaiting his Fleetwood debut.
