STANLEY are hoping they can take some inspiration from Burnley’s rise into the Premiership.
The Clarets didn’t have the biggest budget or biggest squad in the Championship but are still in the top flight after their Wembley win over Sheffield United on Monday.
And Chief Executive Rob Heys is hoping the Reds can take heart from this and mount their own League Two promotion charge this season.
"A lower budget does not mean a lesser performance and I am sure John Coleman will agree with this.
"You listen to Burnley boss Owen Coyle and he isn’t going into the Premiership saying they are competing against bigger budgets and bigger squads but he says he is going in to have a good go and I think John Coleman has the same sentiment.
"People think it is negative being between two Premiership sides in Blackburn and Burnley but I think it could work in our favour.
"They don’t often play at 3pm on Saturdays and people may choose Accrington to get back to the grassroots of football and the nitty gritty of being close to the pitch."
