Loan trio in line to start
Accrington could hand three loanees their first starts when they host Cheltenham.
Striker James Spray, from Wolves, and midfield pair Will Hatfield and Luke Dobie are all bidding to make John Coleman`s starting XI.
A knock has delayed Spray's Stanley bow while Hatfield, borrowed from Leeds, and Dobie, on loan from Middlesbrough, will be hoping to secure starting berths after coming off the bench in the 2-0 defeat to Swindon.
Tom Bender, another loanee from Colchester, is the only absentee for Coleman.
The 18-year-old suffered severe concussion against Tranmere in the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy at the start of the month and the game was abandoned as a result of Bender's injury.
He has returned to light training but is not yet heading the ball and continues to undergo medical assessment.
Striker Theo Lewis is the only absentee for Cheltenham.
Lewis picked up a knock in a reserve match against Brighton and will not be making the trip north.
Manager Mark Yates is otherwise picking from a full squad as the Robins look to grab their fifth win on the bounce.
And Yates was keen to emphasise the entire squad's contribution to their impressive run that has seen them rise to fourth in the League 2 table.
"The squad factor is massive for us and it's great to have so many fit players at one time," he told the club website.
"It's great to have that kind of competition and I think we are seeing better results and better performances because of that."
Goulding sinks Stanley
Jeff Goulding scored the winner within seconds of coming on to make it five straight victories for Cheltenham following a 1-0 success at Accrington which pushed them into the automatic promotion spots.
The striker replaced James Spencer - who had been booked and was in danger of picking up another one - after 44 minutes. Moments later he collected Luke Garbutt's ball forward 30 yards out and looped the ball over the stranded Ian Dunbavin.
It was the Robins` first shot on target after Stanley had created the better chances.
Loan striker Will Hatfield had a fierce shot saved by goalkeeper Jack Butland and James Spray was denied from close range.
After the break, Alan Bennett had a shot cleared off the line for the visitors and Russell Penn could only find the side-netting in a breakaway as Cheltenham looked to get a two-goal cushion.
Stanley threw everything at Cheltenham in the last 10 minutes but the visitors held on for an important win.
