Opposition View: Accrington's promotion from Sky Bet League Two played out to a busy summer, as a number of players departed and an influx of players arrived at the WHAM Stadium. On the opening weekend, John Coleman's side tasted defeat when Gillingham made the long trip north, with Coleman alluding to expecting a tough test on Saturday afternoon at the Mem in his pre-match press conference.
