JOHN Coleman is hoping his home-loving side can knock AFC Bournemouth off the top of the table and continue their strong form at the Crown Ground.
The Cherries hold a narrow one-point gap at the top and have a miserly defence with just eight goals conceded so far this season.
But Eddie Howe, at 31 the youngest manager in the Football League, has seen his side stumble in the last three league games with two losses and a draw.
And they come up against a Stanley side who have been on-fire in their last three games at the Crown Ground with nine points out of nine and 11 goals scored.
"Last year when we played Bournemouth we had a great win at home and then it was a great win before that when we played them in the FA¿Cup when we were a non league team and they were a league side," said boss Coleman.
"Hopefully it will be another good win tomorrow and they come in threes.
"We were disappointed to lose at their place last season and Andy Procter would like to erase that game from his memory after missing a penalty and hopefully he will.
"We have been in good home form this season as we have won our last three and I can’t remember us doing that on the spin in the last few years and we want to make it four.
"The goals are going in and that had been a problem which had haunted us and something we have addressed.
"Hopefully that will make people want to pay their hard-earned money to watch us."
Bournemouth do have similarities to the Reds in that they are struggling financially and they have a transfer embargo - but Coleman says that’s where it ends.
"All they have got similar to us is the transfer embargo as if you compare their wage bill for their squad of 20 to ours, ours will pale into insignificance so I wouldn’t be feeling too sorry for them.
"They have got quality players in their side and have gone through a bit of a sticky patch and they will be hoping to come out of it.
"We have got to try and keep our foot on the gas and we have got to play to our strengths.
"Unfortunately for us, we play one of two ways - when we are good we are very, very good and when we are bad we are horrid.
"We need to get a little bit more commitment and be more on an even keel.
"Bournemouth are top of the league and it usually brings the best out of our players when there is a challenge and they will certainly be a challenge for us."
Goalkeeper Alan Martin is back from Scotland Under 21 duty as is striker Billy Kee from Northern Ireland’s Under 21 defeat in Iceland.
And, despite keeper Ian Dunbavin not taking goal kicks in the 3-1 "Save Our Stanley" loss to Blackburn on Tuesday night, the boss said there were no new injury problems.
"It was just a precaution with Bav’s kicking and we also didn’t play Darran Kempson as a precaution as he recovers from a thigh strain."
