AC­CRING­TON READY FOR LIFT-OFF

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

THIS hugely-an­tic­i­pated game be­tween two of League Two’s pro­mo­tion chasers was a largely dis­ap­point­ing af­fair bright­ened up only by a fine Stan­ley goal.

On this ev­i­dence it is Stan­ley who are surely as­sured of a play-off berth, and maybe more, if they can keep as solid at the back as they did in this game, and con­tinue to threaten up front with their busy and en­ter­pris­ing play.

While play­ing de­fen­sively away from home at one of the league’s bet­ter sides is no crime, Ori­ent of­fered very lit­tle in this game and player manag- er Kevin Nolan should be con­cerned over how badly his side faded once the hosts hit their stride.

If the key to win­ning pro­mo­tion is get­ting over the line in those ugly games then Ac­cring­ton should have no con­cern.
