Accrington Stanley boss John Coleman has made one change to his side for tonight’s home game with Hartlepool United.

Experienced full-back Nicky Hunt misses out through injury and is replaced in the starting eleven by Shay McCartan.

After two consecutive defeats, the manager will want his team to get back to winning ways on home soil and the 52 year-old has handed a home debut to Fulham loanee Jesse Joronen as he continues to deputise for the injured Aaron Chapman in goal.

Tom Aldred continues his remarkable run in the side with a 78th consecutive start in the centre of defence alongside Rob Atkinson.

John O’Sullivan extended his loan spell from Blackburn Rovers with the club earlier this week and will be hoping to add to his burgeoning reputation with another strong performance as a part of the attacking triumvirate supporting striker James Gray.

Stanley: Joronen; Winnard, Aldred, Atkinson, Molyneux; Joyce, Procter; O’Sullivan, Maguire, McCartan; Gray.
Subs: Simpson, Barry, Hatfield, Mingoia, Windass, Carver, Bowerman.
