CRISIS club Accrington Stanley could be docked SEVEN points for fielding ineligible players, leaving their Football League survival hanging by a thread.
The League has brought charges against the club in relation to two players.
The first is Chris McGrail, who was on work experience from Preston North End and came on as a substitute in the 3-2 win over Mansfield Town and the 1-1 draw with Wycombe Wanderers.
And the second is local teenage goalkeeper Martin Fearon, who has come through the ranks at the club and was on the bench for the 3-1 win at Wrexham.
The Reds could be deducted all the points they gained from those three games when the disciplinary hearing is held on 30 March, but they believe the errors are a "minor technicality" and will put forward a strong case.
A seven-point deduction would leave them at the bottom of the table, a point behind tomorrow's visitors Torquay.
Chairman Eric Whalley has dubbed the crunch match "the biggest in our history" and fans will be allowed in FREE in a bid to attract a bumper crowd.
He said: "We had to try something. The manager keeps complaining about the lack of atmosphere and things aren't going our way on the pitch so we need the fans to get behind us and make some noise. We need at least 3,500 fans to back us all the way.
"In some of the games it has been like being in Accrington Library. We want the crowd to be like the 12th man and help us to win.''
