OLDHAM boss Brian Talbot has warned his players to beware of an Accrington backlash in tonight's LDV Trophy second round tie.
Stanley were dumped out of the FA Cup on Saturday by Leigh RMI, and Talbot explained: "They will want to take it out on us.
"We have to make sure we stayed fully focused and don't take them too lightly. It has all the makings of a potential banana skin, but I want to go all the way to the final in this competition."
For Stanley, Lee McEvilly returns from suspension while Rory Prendergast, Steve Halford and Jon Kennedy miss out through injury.
Defender Will Haining and midfield workaholic John Eyre are out of Oldham's side with hamstring injuries picked up at Stockport. David Beharall and Danny Boshell are both recalled to the squad, but Talbot is almost certain to stick with the side that finished the Edgeley Park derby.
