Piero Mingoia – Accrington’s top scorer last season with eight goals has signed a new one year deal with the club. He was an unused substitute when Stanley came to Rodney Parade and failed to get on the score sheet at the Crown Ground at the end of the March.Key Player:

Prediction:Next season will be Accrington’s tenth straight season in League 2 with their best finish coming in 2011 when they finished fifth. In every other season they have finished in the bottom half of the table and it is difficult to see how they will achieve any more than that again this season. Prediction – bottom half.
