Coley: No travel sickness

20 November 2015

John Coleman is hoping Stanley can keep any travel sickness at bay as they make the trip to Cambridge tomorrow.

The Reds have been strong away from home, winning four of their eight games on their travels and only conceding four goals in all those matches.

There have been strong performances including a win at Leyton Orient, a draw at Portsmouth and an unlucky loss at leaders Plymouth.

Seventeenth placed Cambridge have recently changed their manager with Shaun Derry replacing Richard Money but Coleman knows it's all about his team.

“You have got to feel sorry for Richard Money and anyone who loses their job in any walk of life and, I know it's clichés, but it will be a difficult game,” said Coleman.

“There are no easy games in this league as everyone is capable of beating each other but if we can hit the form we aspire to, and our away form has been excellent this season, we are more than a match for anyone.

“We are not scared of anyone but we do respect anyone we come up against and we play to win – we don't go away and shut up shop or go for a draw, we go to win and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

“We are in a good routine when we travel away and I think the players feel at ease with it which is important.”

Coleman is waiting on Dean Winnard's fitness after the defender came off in the 2-2 draw with Newport but he does have Joe Wright and Shay McCartan back available after the pair came back from international duty.

“Dean is made of strong stuff and if he is able to play then he will but we have adequate replacements. Joe Wright is back from international duty and we have others so we can cope if Dean can't make it,” added Coleman.
