STANLEY boss John Coleman will say two things to his players before sending them out into FA Cup action tomorrow (Saturday): Leigh RMI.
Accrington suffered a shock defeat to the lowly Railwaymen last season to crash out at the first hurdle.
And Coleman is determined to avoid a repeat against Conference North strugglers Worcester City in their fourth qualifying-round clash at the Interlink Express Stadium.
"That defeat against Leigh might stand us in good stead for this year. It could be an alarm call," said Coleman, who knows his side will again be hot favourites to progress.
"We have had the experience of playing at Rotherham on Tuesday night when we showed a great appetite for the game and we have to be the same.
"We have got to generate our own atmosphere and get ourselves psyched up for the game.
"I can't wait for it to start and this is an important competition for us.
"Financially it's important because if we want to strengthen the squad in January we need to stay in it."
Tomorrow's winners will immediately pocket a cheque for £10,000 as well as go into the tea-time draw for the first-round proper with the clubs from Coca Cola Leagues One and Two.
Stanley go into the tie on the back of successive defeats but they should take great confidence from their performance in their LDV Vans Trophy defeat at Rotherham.
Coleman's men went out on penalties after outplaying the League One side and while the boss stressed that his players must learn to win from a position of strength he was prepared to take the positives after a day's reflection.
"Of course it was frustrating not to come away with a win. But if we keep playing like that we will win more than we lose," he said.
Coleman will check on the fitness of a number of players following their 120-minute run-out at Millmoor but does have some fresh legs to call in Michael Brown, Michael Welch, Leam Richardson, Anthony Barry and Mike Flynn, who did not start in mid-week.
Peter Cavanagh is set to miss out and Paul Mullin faces a late check on a neck injury, while Worcester player-boss Andy Preece has his own headaches following a worrying run which has seen his side win only once in the league this season. Preece's last visit to the Interlink saw him come off the bench to score twice for Carlisle last December but the goals have since dried up for him and his new team.
Coleman, though, will not take their threat lightly.
"Cookie went to see them on Monday night and we have a good idea of how they will play. We won't be taking them for granted," he said.
