All calm at Stanley: Coley

28 April 2016

John Coleman says the players are staying calm ahead of what could be the biggest game in Stanley's history.

If the Reds beat Wycombe on Saturday and Oxford lose and Bristol Rovers don't win, Accrington will celebrate promotion to League One after being one of the bookmakers favourites to go down at the start of the season.

“The players are taking everything in their stride, they don't seem to be letting the pressure get to them,” said Coleman.

“They are walking around the place with a smile on their faces, and they are also playing with a smile of their faces.

“They are not showing outwardly they are feeling any pressure. That may change this weekend though.”

It's simple for second placed Stanley – two wins in their final two games and they are up.

“The equation is simple but it can be totally different in real life," continued Coleman.

"The game against Wycombe will be tough, they will want to win in their final home game while Stevenage are hitting form at the wrong time for us.

“But we don't need anyone to do us any favours, we can do it ourselves.

“I do think it will go to the final game of the weekend although it would be a massive relief if we could do it this weekend.”
