Cole­man wants more from his play­ers after

Accrington Observer - - SPORT - STAN­LEY........................... 1 GRIMSBY TOWN ............. 2


AC­CRING­TON Stan­ley saw their good run of form come to an end after they suf­fered a home de­feat against Grimsby Town.

Goals from Sam Jones and Mar­tyn Wool­ford ei­ther side of Kay­den Jack­son’s strike con­demned John Cole­man’s men to de­feat at the Wham Sta­dium.

It means the Reds now find them­selves in third place in the League Two ta­ble, six points off lead­ers Ex­eter City.

While Stan­ley boss John Cole­man thought it was a de­cent ef­fort from Grimsby, he felt his play­ers should have pro­duced more.

“You’ve got to give them credit, they came and worked hard and made it dif­fi­cult for us,” he said.

“The game was a non-event in the first half. I was dis­ap­pointed with their goal, and then the first time we had a shot was after half an hour, which is poor from us.

“The first time we played like we can, we scored to equalise, but then the game spins around in the space of a minute in the sec­ond half.

“We break with a great move and are clean through, but their goal­keeper makes a good save and then we miss a sit­ter from the cor­ner.

“We huffed and puffed a bit after that but we only got go­ing in the last 15 min­utes.

“We caused them some prob­lems and on an­other day they go in, but it wasn’t to be.

There is a fine line be­tween win­ning and los­ing, and I don’t think ei­ther side could have com­plained to win, lose or draw.”

Both teams had half-chances in the early stages of the match, but
