Evatt has selected the side to take on Stanley. He has made eight changes to his side from the team which beat Leeds United's 3-0 win in midweek.

Manchester City loanee James Trafford is replace Joel Dixon inbetween the sticks. One of the big team selection talking points for Wanderers however comes at right wing-back.

Liverpool loanee Conor Bradley is not featuring as he is suspended for a match after picking up his fifth yellow card last time out in League One in the draw against Barnsley. His place in the team has been filled by Lloyd Isgrove.

In the back three, Gethin Jones is joined by captain Ricardo Santos and George Johnston. At left wing-back, though it it not completely clear, it looks like Dapo Afolayan could be starting in that role if Wanderers do indeed continue with wing-backs after Declan John began the win over Leeds while in central midfield, MJ Williams returns to the team and is partnered by Kyle Dempsey.

Kieran Lee is given the nod in the number 10 role, while former Accrington boss Dion Charles starts against his old side. He is partnered by Jon Dadi Bodvarsson upfront.

On the bench this afternoon for Wanderers are Jack Iredale, George Thomason, Josh Sheehan, Aaron Morley, Kieran Sadlier, Amadou Bakayoko and Elias Kachunga.
