'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Accrington Stanley vs. Nottingham Forest

Carling Cup. Who Are They?

Apart from the infamous TV commercial of the 80's, Forest fans could be forgiven for not knowing too much about 'Stanley'

When they suffered their inglorious departure from the old fourth division on 12 March 1962, there seemed no way back for a side riddled with debt and unable to fulfil their fixtures or pay the players' wages. But, Accrington Stanley confirmed their place in the Football League on Easter Saturday, 15 April 2006, with a 1-0 win at Woking. The club are at present sitting in 16th place in League 2. The game against Forest will be the clubs' biggest fixture in years and sees the Sky TV cameras turning up hoping for an early cup upset.
