A BUMPER crowd is expected for the visit of promotion chasers Carlisle United on Tuesday night.
Paul Simpson's men regularly top crowds of 5,000 at home and at least 1,500 are expected to make the trip on the M6.
There will be segregation at the Interlink to accomodate all the fans but manager John Coleman expects a good atmosphere.
"The atmosphere is generally better at night matches than on Saturdays. Hopefully the crowd will get behind us and we will give them something to shout about.
"It is a big game for us but at the end of the day you only get three points for winning it. They are one of the teams expected to stay the pace in the Conference, though."
For Stanley player Lee McEvilly he will be up against his former boss Paul Simpson. The duo were together at Rochdale and the striker will also face his former Dale team-mates Simon Grand and Lee Andrews at Brunton Park.
Meanwhile, former Burnley players Tom Cowan and Kevin Henderson also play for United as well as former Bury boss Andy Preece in a team packed with Football League experience.
Carlisle, relegated from the Football League last season, suffered a shock loss against York last week for only their second league loss.
"Accrington is another important game for us," said Simpson. "We want to get ourselves back on track. We had a defeat at York and we want to start winning again.
"Having said that, Accrington are a big strong side with some good players and some Football League experience so it will be a tough game.
"But we will have another good support with us there and it's a game we are looking forward to."
