Last night was a big night for Accrington Stanley who, with a 2-0 win over Yeovil, formally secured their promotion to League One.

Accrington are currently perched atop the League Two table, four points clear of Luton in second with four games left to play, but the three points garnered on Tuesday evening saw the point-gap between themselves and the play-off spots become mathematically unassailable.

Cast your mind back a few days and you may recall Pies bringing you news of a major scandal rocking the far end of the Football League (EFL) involving the Accrington Stanley squad and their post-match burgers.

Accrington owner Andy Holt found himself summoned to appear before the EFL committee after he let slip that, as an occasional bonus, he sometimes gives his players a couple of hundred quid to spend on "McDonald's and the like" as a treat for winning matches.

Accrington Stanleyfell to a 2-1 away defeat against Crawley Town in League Two on Saturday afternoon, though the losers can at least claim to have scored the best goal of the game.

Unfortunately, however, the goal in question must also technically be credited to Crawley, as it was midfielder Jimmy Smith who entirely unwittingly sent a powerful header arcing into his own net to grab a 57th-minute consolation for the visitors.

With more than a quarter of the league season now played, the tables are starting to take some sort of shape. Over the rest of this week, we'll be looking at four clubs who sit at the very foot of their divisions, starting at the bottom of League Two and a club that has rather got used to a life of struggle in recent years, Accrington Stanley.

It is probably fair to say that 2012 hasn't been the greatest year for British football clubs so far, financially speaking at least. Rangers, Portsmouth, Darlington and Port Vale all languish in administration and it is possible that others will join them. The language of the discussion of these clubs carries many tropes that are easily identifiable, but there is one that sends a cold chill down the spine of supporters more than any other: the possibility of a club failing to complete its fixtures.

John Coleman's departure from the Accrington Stanley job in January after 12 years in the role reverberated throughout Lancashire. The Liverpudlian had transformed the beleaguered Accies from a name used to market dairy products into a serious footballing concern again, and defeat to Stevenage in the play-off semi-final last May wipes none of the gloss from his striking achievements.

Anyone of a certain vintage will remain those infamous astro-turf pitches at Loftus Road and Kenilworth Road in the 1980′s.
