Football - Stanley struggle for numbers

Depleted Accrington could again be without as many as four of their more senior players when Burton visit the Crown Ground.

PA Sport Report

Striker Danny Webber completes his three-match suspension, full-back Nicky Hunt and goalkeeper Ian Dunbavin (both knee) are not expected to be back in action for at least another month while defender Laurence Wilson is also very doubtful with a groin strain.

On-loan stopper Marcus Bettinelli arrived from Fulham on Wednesday and made his debut in the 2-0 Capital One Cup defeat against Cardiff, a game which also featured 16-year-old Connor Mahoney and both may be involved again.

Prior to the Bluebirds clash, manager James Beattie suggested a lack of numbers for the side bottom of League Two could force him to play himself yet he resisted the urge to do so on Wednesday.
