Four-goal hero Padraig Amond believes Stanley have one of the strongest squads there has ever been at the Crown Ground.
And he is confident that should be enough to keep them challenging for the top seven spots.
Boss Paul Cook does have a wealth of talented players at his disposal despite the Reds having the lowest budget in League Two.
He has recently added four loan players – midfielder Danny Schofield, from Rotherham, defender Rob Atkinson, from Fleetwood, and two Watford loanees, Piero Mongoia and Matt Whichelow, who want games under their belt.
The same came be said of Reading loan striker Karl Sheppard – who started the season up front and is battling to secure a regular place in the starting line-up.
Then there are permanent signings George Miller and Dean Winnard who are both injured; Toto Nsiala and Michael Liddle who were both suspended on Saturday while striker James Gray was sat in the stands along with midfielder Luke Clark while the likes of Adian Chippendale, Charlie Barnett and Bohan Dixon are pressing from the bench.
Amond himself was a substitute on Saturday – Sheppard replaced him in the starting XI – and he came off the bench to score the winner, admitting it’s a battle to get in the team.
"You know it’s impossible to play every game with the way the gaffer wants us to work so hard," said the 24-year-old. "I think it would be impossible for an outfield player to play 46 games so you need a squad and I think this is the strongest we have had here.
"Last year we had a strong 11, 12 or 13, but now we have a bench full of quality. You only have to look at who wasn’t playing on Saturday – George, Toto, Dean, Luke and Michael and I don’t think Accrington has ever had as strong a squad.
"It’s up to ourselves on the pitch to keep winning and the lads not in the team or the squad to keep pushing us.
"On Saturday against Aldershot the gaffer made four or five changes and it didn’t weaken us at all, we were possibly stronger in places, and the gaffer has his work cut out keeping everyone happy.
"That’s a good position for him to be in, the board are backing him all the way bringing in new players and we are getting our rewards by doing well."
Amond, who got eight goals in his season-long loan spell last year, has already got four after signing permanently in the summer and admits there are plenty more to come from him in this campaign.
"Fans didn’t see the real me last season. I score goals and that’s what I expect and the gaffer expects goals too. So I have four goals now and it’s nice to be playing up front. There is good competition for places. Karl played ever so well on Saturday and he was unlucky with a couple of chances and I am sure, once he gets one, he will go on a run.
"There’s good competition and it’s good for us, whoever gets on the scoresheet – and it was nice for me to score but more importantly it was good to get the win."
Amond admits he doesn’t look too far ahead in terms of games.
"I do just take it one game at a time," he revealed.¿"I don’t know who we are playing next and had to ask if we had a game midweek!
"I just do what I am told, turn up when I am told, travel wherever and do not really look at the league.
"The gaffer always says there’s no point looking at the league table so early in the season as, if you keep winning, you certainly don’t go down the league."
