SIX GAMES to go and John Coleman is eager to get another two wins to guarantee their League Two survival.
The Reds are 12 points clear of the bottom two and their run-in consists of teams around them in the lower half of the table with a trip to Macclesfield first up tomorrow.
This is followed by Dagenham (h), Notts County (a), Barnet (h), Wrexham (a) and Bury (h).
But the Stanley chief is not getting carried away into believing his side are now safe.
"I think we still need the elusive two wins as things can change very quickly in a matter of weeks especially when you are not winning and other teams are as they can quickly close the gap," he said.
"We want to keep the other clubs at arms length until they run out of games and a win tomorrow would be a good place to start.
"The games we have left are winnable - or losable - but I would snatch your hand off now to get six points, be safe and then start planning for next season."
Coleman is already assessing his current squad with the Reds not expected to sign anyone before the loan deadline ended at 5pm yesterday despite saying they would like to get a striker in.
Stanley’s David Brown was in talks with a Conference outfit about finishing the season with them, after a loan spell with Rushden and Diamonds earlier in the season.
Meanwhile, Reds’ loan striker Andy Mangan has returned to Bury with a groin strain.
"He is having problems and can’t give us his best at the moment," said Coleman. "But he is someone we will consider for next season."
The Reds’ chief was also awaiting a reply from Shrewsbury about extending Darran Kempson’s loan until the end of the season as his initial one month ended this week.
"Darran has done well for us and we want him until the end of season. If he is someone I would like for next season, we will have to see once we see what league we are in and how many points we have got."
The manager was also speaking to Championship side Charlton today as Aswad Thomas’s deal is also up.
Meanwhile, the Reds are hoping for a rousing end to the campaign despite losing four of their last five games.
Saturday’s 4-2 loss to Chesterfield was disappointing while there was a lot better show in their 1-0 defeat to league leaders MK Dons on Easter Monday.
"If we defend and show the determination we showed on Monday then hopefully, we can get the win.
"But it will be hard as Macclesfield are fighting for their lives."
Striker Paul Mullin, the Reds’ top scorer, may return after a calf injury kept him sidelined over Easter although it is touch and go.
Macclesfield boss Keith Alexander, whose side lie eight points and two places out of the drop zone, said: "Accrington is almost a local derby and they’re a team that can put four or five past you if you’re not on your game. So we’ll have to be on our game and not be over-confident."
Striker Martin Gritton is hoping to recover from a groin strain for the Silkman while Everton loan frontman Scott Spencer will probably be on the bench.
STANLEY’S reserves lost 3-0 at home to Wrexham on Wednesday night with Leighton McGivern having a penalty saved in the dying minutes. Their next game is at Rochdale on Wednesday April 9.
