ACCRINGTON Stanley are definitely in need of a jolt in order to get out of the current bad run of form.

I had hoped that James Beattie signing until the end of the season may have been the lift the team needed to bring some much needed joy, but it was not to be.

Aldershot scored an early goal and we struggled to get back into our stride.

It may well be that our young squad needs a couple more experienced heads among them to steady the ship when things are not going according to plan.

I am still confident that Leam Richardson is building a good squad which is more than capable of moving up the league to safety.

This Saturday, weather permitting, we entertain AFC Wimbledon in a massive six-pointer.

The club is doing all they can do to get folk back through the turnstiles with normal admission reduced to £5 on the gates and kids to just £1.

I hope the Reds can put on a show for the additional fans that turn up – similar to the away performance earlier this year at Fleetwood.

If they do then we can be sure the new faces will return.
