LEE McEvilly was recalled to the Stanley starting line-up - and repaid his manager's faith in him by scoring both goals.
The striker had been on the bench for the last two games but got the nod to face relegation-haunted Farnborough. And he headed home Rory Prendergast's cross in the 11th minute before latching onto a Paul Mullin pass and firing home the winner on 56 minutes to make it 10 goals for the season.
"We all know what Lee can do," said manager John Coleman. "But I will pick what I think is the best team on the day and that means that Lee will sometimes miss out."
The win was a huge boost for the Reds and moves them up to third place in the table after back-to-back wins.
"We haven't got to worry about other teams but just keep getting our heads down and working hard," added Coleman. "I have set a target of how many points we need to get into the play-offs and that is another three chalked off."
They didn't have it all their own way as Gary Holloway equalised on 22 minutes against the run of play and then Stanley had to withstand a nerve-racking 10 minute spell of pressure at the end but they held on.
