COLEMAN SALUTES ‘PERFECT’ STANLEY
All outstanding, says boss
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
WINNER: Accrington’s Scott Brown fires home the crucial goal
