Stanley have signed goalkeeper Jack Rose on loan from West Brom.
That has left Luke Simpson as their only senior keeper so manager John Coleman brought in Rose before Sunday's FA Cup tie at Notts County.
The 19-year-old, who has been a regular with West Brom's Under-21s, has joined the Reds for a month, taking part in his first training session on Friday.
“It’s been good,” he said. “I’ve been welcomed really well and didn’t feel out of place. I want to hit the ground running and get off to a good start.
“I’ve been at West Brom and coming up through the ranks and this is the next step that I need to take.
"I feel like this is a great opportunity. Accrington is a great club and I need to take the chance with both hands - and take it well.”
A number of keepers loaned to Stanley during Coleman's first spell in charge have gone on to play regularly in the Premier League and/or the Championship.
And Fulham's Marcus Bettinelli, who won Stanley's young player of the year award after his loan spell with the Reds last season, was this week named in England's Under-21 squad for the first time.
“We’ve been quite fortunate with the loan keepers that we’ve brought in previously but clearly unfortunate this season with all the injuries,” said Coleman.
“I know Jack has been very keen to come which is the thing that you’re looking for. You want players who are keen to play football and competitive football.
"It gives them the opportunity to push themselves up the pecking order at their parent clubs and Jack will have that opportunity with us.”
Subject to ratification, Rose could make his debut in Sunday's FA Cup first-round tie. So too could Craig Roddan after he joined Stanley on a short-term deal on Friday.
