Stan­ley de­serve greater sup­port

Accrington Observer - - SPORT -

STAN­LEY man­ager John Cole­man likened his side to Barcelona af­ter Satur­day’s 2-1 win against AFC Wim­ble­don – and just wishes there were more home sup­port­ers to ap­pre­ci­ate his play­ers.

Cole­man was de­lighted as the Reds earned their first League One vic­tory at home, pro­duc­ing some su­perb foot­ball along the way.

“I don’t want to be a moan­ing Min­nie, but if Barcelona were play­ing in Ac­cring­ton for a month, would we get more than 2,000 home fans com­ing?” he asked.

“You’d like to think we would, but some of the foot­ball we played in the first half hour was bet­ter than what Barcelona could ever per­form at this level.

“We’re not get­ting the credit we de­serve from the pub­lic of Ac­cring­ton. It’s bril­liant for the peo­ple who came and the at­mos­phere they make is great, but we need more peo­ple to wit­ness the good foot­ball we play.

“I don’t know how much more we can do than play some of the breath­tak­ing foot­ball we played in the first half hour.

“Peo­ple are miss­ing out, sadly.

“In the 19 years I’ve been here I can’t re­mem­ber an Ac­cring­ton team play­ing that well in that 30 min­utes. We were un­playable and I wish more peo­ple would come and wit­ness it.”
