HON­EST JOHN’S STAN­LEY WARN­ING

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO - By Jamie Holt

JOHN Cole­man has sounded the alarm at the Crown Ground, ad­mit­ting his Ac­cring­ton side are firmly in the thick of a rel­e­ga­tion battle.

Head­ing into this week­end’s clash at Ply­mouth, Stan­ley had lost four on the spin as they slid down the ta­ble. And it was the lat­est of those four de­feats that re­ally made Cole­man sit up and take note, his troops be­ing thumped 5-1 at home by Northamp­ton.

“We’re def­i­nitely in a rel­e­ga­tion battle and we need to stop the rot,” he said. “Some­one al­ways goes into freefall at this stage of the sea­son and at the mo­ment it looks like that is us.

“It’s been dis­ap­point­ing as of late but we have time on our side to put it right and en­sure that we stay in this di­vi­sion.

“I’ve got to take re­spon­si­bil­ity for what has hap­pened and I’m re­al­is­tic enough to know that the buck stops with me.

“I’ve put faith in too many play­ers that have proved not to be good enough.We’ve got to get back on track and I’ve got to go out and try and get some good play­ers.

“I’ve made some cul­pa­ble er­rors and I’ve been pun­ished for it but I’m determined to put it right.”
