THE curse of the goalkeepers has struck again with Ian Dunbavin out for at least a month with a knee injury.
The Stanley keeper suffered a tear in his knee in the abandoned clash with Mansfield in December.
The 26-year-old is absolutely gutted especially following Rob Elliot's shock recall to Charlton last week.
It means new signing, Poland's teenage goalie Przemyslaw Kazimierczak could start tomorrow (Sat) with Martin Fearon on the bench although Coleman has not ruled out getting an emergency loan goalie in next week.
"I can't believe it," said Dunbavin. "The frustrating thing is I feel okay and can do most things - it is just kicking which is a problem.
"I collided with the player at Mansfield but thought I would be okay and declared myself fit for the Wycombe game and was on the bench. But I think it was wishful thinking.
"I went to kick a ball in Spain and my knee went again and I had a scan at Rochdale on Monday.
"It is similar to Cav's (Peter Cavanagh's) although not as bad and it will mend but it is another set-back. I am just so disappointed and feel sorry for the gaffer.
"I am, though, a strong person and I will bounce back and hopefully, in the meantime, Przemyslaw will come in and will help Accrington secure some more points.
"Soss (Physio) Ian Liversedge has prepared me for the worst and said four-six weeks but I hope I am back before that."
Dunbavin can't believe the bad luck Accrington are having with keepers but he is determined to come back as soon as he can and help Stanley stay in League Two.
"Hopefully, I will only miss five games at the most. But I really want to come back and put right some of the stuff I have messed up. I have made some mistakes and I want to get back on the field and put them right.
"I hope I have done some good things too and that is why it is just all so frustrating.
"Hopefully I will be back for the last 12 games or so and be part of the side which saves the club from relegation.
"We are in a relegation battle and a successful season will be staying up and I hope I still have a part to play in that."
Kazimierczak, 18, has signed from Premier side Bolton and has put in a number of impressive displays for the Wanderers reserves. He has also made appearances for his country at Under 16 and Under 17 level and lists his aims as to play for the Polish senior team.
He played in the 2-0 win over Oldham reserves on Wednesday.
"He didn't have a great deal to do," said boss John Coleman. "But it was a good exercise as I wanted him to get to know the back four.
"I am not worried that he is young as he has a good pedigree and is a friendly lad, very confident, and will get on famously with our players.
"We have had horrendous luck with goalkeepers - we have been plagued with injuries - so you just tend to expect them now. And I would have no hesitation in putting Martin (Fearon) in goal."
