Cash-strapped Stanley earned a bumper pay day thanks to John Miles’ strike 10 minutes from time to clinch a 1-0 victory against Gillingham.

“We have never played a Premier club here in my reign and I would like to think we can get a full house.

“The lads have given their all this season, through the good times and the bad times, even when the club and their employment were under threat.”
