Half term report Accrington

Accrington Stanley half term report

After a lengthy time out of the football league it appears that life in division two has come as quiet a culture shock to them. Just as our visit to Accrington came as a shock to us. It is good news for all travelling fans as well as Stanley supporters that plans for a new ground are afoot.
After a promising start things have gone from bad to worse. This seems to go along with the loss of there star player Gary Roberts to Ipswich, a goal scoring replacement is required in January to stop the slide, however the lack of finance means bargain basement shopping for Stanley, but perhaps they are in the best position to judge non league talent.

Pre season we wrote
Accrington Stanley
"Last season took the Conference by storm winning 28 of the 42 losing only 7 (with 7 drawn), scoring 76 goals letting in just 45 in the process. This season will depend on how Stanley view their achievement, if they carry the momentum gained last season they will have a good year, as did Carlisle. However if they sit back and bask in just been a league club again then they could be caught out just like Barnet nearly found out to there cost last year. Boss John Coleman must hope for a good start otherwise that confidence could evaporate quickly."
This seems to be the case as the goals were sold the confidence has gone and unless some changes are made then a nervous end to the season may be on the cards. I can`t see them going down but I predicted a lower mid table finish, which now seems a little harder to achieve.

Position so far 21st with 23 points from 24 games, Just one win in the last eleven games is cause for concern, But never fear manager John Coleman stated his boys were better than the saddlers
