Cook looks to youth
A handful of youth-team players are pushing for inclusion as Accrington boss Paul Cook prepares for the final game of the season.
Striker Marcus Carver made his debut from the bench in last weekend's defeat at Bristol Rovers and is ready for further action against Crawley, while midfielder Adam Stockdale is eying his own Stanley bow having narrowly missed out on the matchday squad at the Memorial Stadium. Both players penned their first professional deals at the Crown Ground this week, alongside Ryan Hopper, who will look to add to his four appearances in midfield under Cook's stewardship. Ian Craney is no longer an option in the engine room after he failed to agree a new deal, bringing his third stint with the Reds to a close. Will Hatfield is expected to remain on the sidelines with a hamstring injury alongside defenders Dean Winnard (ankle), Danny Coid (knee) and Sean Hessey (hamstring).
