A real atmospheric preview of our tie at Accrington in today’s Guardian by David Hopps. Stanley assistant manager Jimmy Bell has some warm words on Fulham:

Fulham have been a breath of fresh air in the Premier League. But they won’t be used to a pitch like ours or commitment like ours. It’s a different type of game down here, sometimes it seems like a different sport. Every time you go to a Premier League game these days they seem to be wheeling out the lights to help grow their artificial grass. The groundsman has done his best, but last week me and Jimmy were out on the pitch shovelling snow.

We’ve visited a few lower-league grounds in recent years. Think Bristol Rovers, Leigh RMI and Kettering. The good news is we only lost one of those games.
