Accrington Preview

18 October 2013

A full guide to Saturday's big game

United have no new injury worries as they head for Accrington. Alfie Potter is still ruled out after a slight hamstring problem but should be available again for next weekend's trip to Wimbledon while Jon Meades is likely to miss the next three months after an ankle operation.
Boss Chris Wilder must decide whether to stick with the new-look three man defensive system that proved so successful in the 2-0 win over Northampton or revert to a back four as United look to continue their unbeaten start to the season on the road.

Accrington will be without suspended striker Kayode Odejaye after his sending off against Wimbledon.

“We’ll sorely miss Kay,” manager James Beattie said. “He’s been imposing himself on games recently and people now can see the reasons why we brought him in and we’ll miss him terribly.

“But there’s a squad of players in there who I believe can get us out of this trouble that we’re in.”
