COLE­MAN SA­LUTES ‘PER­FECT’ STAN­LEY

All out­stand­ing, says boss

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

AC­CRING­TON boss John Cole­man branded his side ‘one of the best three in the divi­sion’ af­ter a Scott Brown goal was enough to beat fel­low play-off chasers Ley­ton Ori­ent in front of the Wham Sta­dium’s big­gest crowd of the sea­son.

Brown’s well-taken strike five min­utes af­ter half-time was the high­light of a largely dis­ap­point­ing game be­tween two sides who have one eye on League One next year.

And given the ev­i­dence of this game it’s Ac­cring­ton who look the more likely to be cel­e­brat­ing come May.

“We can’t get too car­ried away with our­selves, but it’s very rare that you get a game when ev­ery one of your play­ers is out­stand­ing but that was cer­tainly the case here,” said Cole­man, whose side is now just a point off au­to­matic pro­mo­tion.

“We took con­trol of the game and I thought we were fan­tas­tic.We had the bit be­tween our teeth and we were go­ing to win no mat­ter what.We were force­ful, de­fended mag­nif­i­cently and ev­ery one of those play­ers ran them­selves into the ground.

“There will be twists and turns along the way and if we’re not good enough, we’re not good enough, but I per­son­ally be­lieve we are one of the best three teams in the divi­sion.”

A dis­ap­point­ing first 45 min­utes saw Stan­ley make what lit­tle run­ning
