Accrington Stanley are just one win away from historic promotion after a win over Wycombe Wanderers.
Despite a tricky start, the Reds succeeded in putting away a 1-0 victory at Adams Park roared on by seven coachloads of cheering fans.
The result mean they will be promoted to the third tier of English football for the first time since the original Reds went bust in the 1960s if they beat Stevenage in front of a sell out crowd at the Wham Stadium on Saturday.
Clubs bosses are hoping for a sell out crowd for the game.
Manager John Coleman praised the 580 fans who travelled to cheer Stanley to victory.
Mark Hughes scored the winner at Wycombe on 78 minutes and now it’s all down to Stevenage at home next Saturday in the final match of the season.
“The fans deserve a lot of praise, not just today but all season, as the organisers like Ash Seed have played a big part", Coleman told the club's official website after the match.
“The fans were magnificent today, even before kick off as the reception we got when we arrived at the ground brought a tear to my eye.
“They gave up their time and cash to come and it was fantastic and I hope it’s the same atmosphere next week.”
Coleman praised his team as they made it 11 games unbeaten and five away wins on the spin – but with Oxford and Bristol Rovers means Stanley have to win their last game to be sure of promotion.
Mark Hughes who scored the winning goal thanked the fans in his post-match interview.
In a video posted on the Stanley official club website he said: “I’m just glad for the fans, that was just unbelievable today, they basically sucked in the goal it was not more than they deserved, they were absolutely fantastic.
“There was no better feeling than the front of the fans as well, it was the perfect game one-nil, a perfect sheet which was even better.
“Just coming into the stadium we saw them all come into the same time, as we came into the tunnel they were all out clapping, so it might only be five or six hundred but it makes an absolutely massive difference. It makes the journey home absolutely unbelievable.”
Stanley stay in second place, one point ahead of Oxford United and just two points clear of their promotion rival Bristol Rovers.
The club have revealed the Jack Barrett Stand is now sold out ahead of Saturday’s home clash with Stevenage.
