Stanley make their second away trip of the season tomorrow as they head to Meadow Lane to take on Notts County.

John Coleman’s team are looking to make it back-to-back league wins after defeating Mansfield in midweek.

The Opposition

Notts_county_crestNotts are tipped by many to be among the promotion contenders come the end of the season.

After relegation from SkyBet League One last season, manager Ricardo Moniz has wasted no time in overhauling his squad, bringing in 18 new signings as he attempts to take his side back up at the first attempt.

After a mixed start to the new season they’ll be keen for the boost of a home win over the Reds.


Ricardo Moniz began his coaching career in his native Netherlands.

In 2005 he worked at Tottenham Hotspur with Martin Jol, before he moved to Hamburger SV in Germany, where he was caretaker manager for a spell.

His first full managerial job came in 2011 with Red Bull Salzburg, before he took charge of Ferencvaros in 2012.

After a brief spell in charge of TSV 1860 Munchen, he took charge of County as he sought a new challenge.

One to Watch

Arguably a coup for any side in the fourth tier ,Stead joined County from Huddersfield Town this summer after a loan spell at Bradford last season.

With Premier League and Championship experience, Stead will be hoping to continue an impressive goalscoring record and fire County up the table.

The Reds picked up their first victory of the season in midweek when they defeated Mansfield 1-0 at the Wham Stadium thanks to Sean McConville’s goal.

This is only the second away game of the new season, with the first ending in a 1-0 defeat at Morecambe a week ago.

Notts County: WWLL

After an opening weekend win at Stevenage and a Capital One Cup victory at Huddersfield County have lost their last two games.

Both came in the league, with Moniz’s men losing 2-0 at home to Mansfield and 3-1 at Oxford United on Tuesday evening.

Stanley Team News

John Coleman has virtually a clean bill of health in his squad as he has to decide whether to change a winning team.

Skipper Terry Gornell was fit enough for the bench on Tuesday and has continued his recovery from injury in the last few days so could be in contention.

Fellow forward Shay McCartan has also resumed training following his wrist injury.


Notts County have played at Meadow Lane since 1910, with the current capacity of the ground being 19,588.

The clubs record attendance came in 1955 in the FA Cup 6th round when 47,310 saw Notts County take on York City.
