Players compete for their places
JOHN Coleman is glad to once again have competition for places in his goalkeeping department after revealing Max Stryjek has returned to Accrington Stanley.
Stryjek has been out of action since making his debut for Stanley at the start of September, suffering a hamstring injury in that match and spending the past eight weeks recovering at Sunderland.
He is now back with the Reds, and Coleman is expecting a fierce challenge for the number one shirt between him and fellow goalkeeper Aaron Chapman.
“Max is back with us now and hopefully he is over his hamstring troubles, it means that we have two fully-fit goalkeepers fighting for a starting place,” he told the club’s official website. We’ve come through a busy week of football relatively unscathed. A couple of little niggles but we’re hoping to have a fully-fit squad to choose from.”
Chapman has been in between the sticks for Stanley since Stryjek’s injury, putting in a number of impressive performances during that time. One of those performances came on Saturday, when he kept a clean sheet away from home and helped his side pick up a 2-0 victory over Crewe Alexandra.
