Match Preview

Gornell looks to add to brace Terry Gornell is expected to continue in attack for Accrington as they look to continue their play-off push against Northampton. The striker was initially a doubt for the Hereford match but scored twice in a 4-0 victory which moved Stanley to within three points of the top seven. With John Coleman likely to stick with the same side that cruised to victory against the Bulls, Rory Boulding will have to be content with a place on the bench. He scored in a 1-1 draw at Aldershot when Gornell was out injured after he had stitches in a knee wound, but failed to retain his place in the side. Coleman's side have not lost in five matches and are unbeaten at home since January 18. However, they were held to a goalless draw at Sixfields on their first away trip of the season. Northampton midfielder Ryan Gilligan will miss the trip to the Crown Ground. Gilligan has had surgery on an long-standing ankle problem and is sidelined for the rest of the season as manager Gary Johnson searches for his first win in charge. Defender Dean Beckwith was back on the bench for last Friday`s 2-2 draw with Torquay after a groin injury and will be involved again, while captain Andy Holt remains on the sidelines with a muscle problem. Striker Billy McKay is out for another month after dislocating his elbow while fellow forward Leon McKenzie (knee) is back in training and could travel with the squad. Guillem Bauza will continue alongside Shaun Harrad in attack after he scored his first goal for the club to claim a point against Torquay, while new signing Michael Uwezu may be on the bench for the first time.

Match Report

Sensational seven for Stanley Ian Craney scored a double as Accrington Stanley closed in on the play-off spots with their seventh home win on the trot as Northampton were beaten 3-1. The Reds took the lead in the 16th minute when Terry Gornell's shot was blocked by the Cobblers defence but Craney was first to pounce and slot the ball home for his fifth goal for the Reds. A free-kick from Northampton's Josh Walker was then pushed out by Stanley goalkeeper Alex Cisak while home defender Phil Edwards cleared Liam Davis' effort off the line. However it was Stanley who extended their lead in the 27th minute when Sean McConville's strike was blocked and it came out to Jimmy Ryan who fired goalwards and the ball deflected off Craney and wrong-footed keeper Chris Dunn. It was three on 35 minutes when Ryan's cross from the right was flicked on by Andy Procter and was met by McConville who volleyed home his 12th goal of the season. Craney almost grabbed a hat-trick seven minutes after the restart but defender Davis cleared his far post effort off the line. And striker Gornell wasn't far off adding a fourth after bringing down a Craney chip into the area and firing just wide. However, a Michael Jacobs 20-yard free kick into the top corner of the net got one back for Northampton in the 67th minute. But it was the Reds who continued to create the better chances, as striker Gornell was twice denied by keeper Dunn from close range while the Cobblers stopper superbly pushed away Craney's fierce strike. It was another comfortable day for eighth placed Stanley who have lost just once in 12 games and, if they win their game in hand against Southend at home on Tuesday, they will move into the top seven.
