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.
Stanley: I Dunbavin, P Cavanagh, M Welch, R Williams, L Richardson, A Todd, S Doherty, I Craney, J Harris, A Mangan, G Roberts, P Mullin, R Boco, P Edwards, J N'da, J Byrom.
Romuald Boco is a Benin international. He is the captain of the national team and is commonly known as 'the king of Benin.' He holds a French passport. Boco had the honour of scoring the first two Football League goals for Stanley 44 years after the last one in a 2-1 win against Barnet.
Forest are expected to make several changes for this Carling Cup clash and will probably rest a few of the first team players. This could see the likes of Bastians and Weir- Dailey getting a run out for the Reds.
Forest possible: Smith, Morgan, Curtis, Breckin, Cullip, Southall, Perch, Thompson, Gary Holt, Clingan, Bennett, Grant Holt, Lester, Harris, Pedersen, Weir-Daley, Bastians.
Grant Holt is the main threat for the Reds, confidence will be high after his brace at the weekend against Brighton.
