Accrington slipped into the relegation zone after a 2-0 loss at Northampton last weekend but lie just 3 points off Barnet who are in 18th, in what is a stacked relegation dogfight down at the basement of the football league.
Stanley have conjured up just 1 win in their last 6 they have only won 4 games at home all season. This is compiled by the fact that they have also scored the least amount of goals on their own patch out of all league 2 clubs and they have lost the most games in the division alongside fellow strugglers Wimbledon. Facts that without doubt make for grim reading. New signing Francis Jeffers has arrived at the Fraser Eagle stadium via Maltese outfit Floriana and looks set to make his full debut. They may take confidence from their 3-1 win at Fleetwood back in November.
Fleetwood still hold onto fading hopes of a play-off place and steely manager Graham Alexander has stated his desire to win every game regardless of their league position. They currently possess the 2nd best away defence keeping 7 clean sheets in 17, bettered only by league leaders Gillingham. However they are in poor form, winless in 5 games and scored just 1 goal in over 450 minutes of football.
