Gornell doubtful for Bulls clash
Accrington boss John Coleman still has a doubt over Terry Gornell ahead of the home clash with Hereford.
The 21-year-old striker, who missed the 1-1 draw with Aldershot at the weekend with a knee wound which required six stitches, has resumed training but it is unclear whether or not he will make the matchday squad.
However, even if Gornell does recover in time, his inclusion is not guaranteed following his replacement, Rory Boulding's goal against the Shots.
Defender Leam Richardson has also resumed training after missing the last 10 matches with a groin problem, but he is unlikely to be risked against the Bulls.
Coleman has no other injury or suspension problems to worry about.
Defender Kevin Long, midfielders Ray Putterill and Charlie Barnett and striker Craig Lindfield are all available for recalls should Coleman want to freshen things up.
Hereford boss Jamie Pitman has no fresh injury or suspension concerns.
The Bulls got through Sunday's 1-0 win over Crewe without picking up any new problems and Pitman is likely to face Stanley with the same squad.
New loan signing Jason Price, who has already represented Carlisle, Bradford and Walsall this season, could be handed his debut after being an unused substitute against Crewe
However, the 33-year-old forward may have to step off the bench for his first appearance due to Stuart Fleetwood's match-winning strike against the Railwaymen.
Joe Colbeck, who returned from suspension for the win, is expected to continue in midfield at the expense of Rob Purdie.
Long-term absentees, goalkeeper Dan Connor and defender Ryan Valentine (both hip), are still missing.
Stanley give Bulls what four
Terry Gornell took his tally to 12 goals for the season as Accrington closed the gap on the play-off places to three points with a 4-0 romp at home to Hereford.
In a one-sided clash, the Reds took the lead after 16 minutes when Sean McConville found Ian Craney and his shot was flicked into the net by Gornell.
The home team continued to press with Andy Procter having a volley pushed out by Adam Bartlett before the Hereford keeper kept out a McConville drive.
The Bulls` only attack of the half came from James McQuilkin after 38 minutes but his deflected strike bounced off the crossbar and to safety.
Stanley deservedly doubled their tally two minutes before the break when a McConville corner was dummied by Phil Edwards and came out to Jimmy Ryan on the edge of the area and he rifled home his first goal in three months.
And on the stroke of half-time it was three courtesy of a spectacular goal from McConville. Ryan found the midfielder in the area and he controlled the ball in the air before hooking it into the top corner of the net.
Stanley continued in the same vein after the break and Gornell added his second on 56 minutes when he caught `keeper Bartlett loitering on the ball, nipping in to almost walk it into the empty net.
The Bulls kept battling but rarely threatened Reds `keeper Alex Cisak, leaving Stanley to extend their impressive home form to sixth successive victories while they have now lost just once in 11 matches and even have a game in hand on their play-off rivals.
