After a very good start to December with a great win against Cheltenham and three points that moved us sightly up the table, we need to carry on where we left off on Tuesday and get another win under our belt.
Things could look a whole lot better going into the new year and we won't really know what players will be kicking off our second half of the season, so its even more important to get as many points as we can this month.
Zeb's and Randell have to start upfront again and I would expect the only change we will see is Ellis, so if the team play half as good as they did on Tuesday night, then this is a game I feel we will win.
Agree that we should stick with the same line-up, barring Charnock for Ellis. I think this will be a tough one as Accy have a reasonable home record, having won 4 of their 8 home games this season despite their lower-mid position and, themselves, had a good win on the road at Burton last night.
By the sounds of it, a display like last night will see us beating most teams this season. Albeit that Cheltenham sound as if their makeshift defence was pretty clueless.
I think the line up will be pretty straight forward barring injuries.
Looking at the table, Accrington have opened a four point gap over Northampton one place below them and a point above us. A win on Saturday and then again at home against Darlington (1 point so far on the road) could see us joining them in the promised land of mid table obscurity.
The first to present his case seems right, till another comes forward and questions him.
Buster, reading what Buckle had to say about this game, it seems we first have to stand up to their physical presence before we can even think about getting the ball down and trying to play our own game.
Its not going to be an easy game, but I still fell the way the team has been playing, this is a game we can win and I'm sure the players will once again put everything into getting anther three points, they may just like this winning feeling now
Really hope that the weather is kinder than when we visited a few seasons back. On that afternoon the rain lashed down - no it didn't, it lashed horizontally - into the away end all game. I can honestly say that i have never got as wet as a spectator in my life.
It will be a tough one and i'm sure that the conditions will play an important part in the outcome. Optimistic but will settle for a draw.
After taking a surprise lead, its no surprise we are under some pressure, as Accrington stunned by our early goal try to get back on terms. Poke has made what was described as a wonder save, the ball heading into the corner of the net, but Poke somehow got his foot to the ball and stopped it crossing the line.
Rendell seems also to be doing his part up the other end and closing players down and chasing lost causes, Thomson also sounds to giving Accrington a few problems.

The live text commentary on BBC suggests that Accy are getting some shots in - reckon it's going to be a busy afternoon for Poke et al! I can't recall us ever getting so many penalties as we have done this season - and we're certainly not a team of divers (thanks to Sir Christopher Roberts' fabulous "Torquay Initiative"!).
