Chapman expecting reaction

17 October 2017

Goalkeeper Aaron Chapman has urged Stanley to show their ruthless streak when they travel to Stevenage tonight.

Darren Sarll's men, who currently sit 9th in League Two, were beaten 7-1 at Luton and Chapman believes that will make the Reds task all the more difficult this evening.

"We're expecting a bit of a reaction when we go there," he said. "They've had a disappointing result at the weekend so we will have to prepare for that reaction and make sure we can still come away with a positive result.

"Losing by that scoreline is not a nice result for anyone to take, but football can be ruthless and we have to go out there and give them another defeat and keep pushing on."

Chapman, who is currently the only fit first team goalkeeper at Stanley, has been enjoying a lengthy spell in John Coleman's side and kept his third clean sheet of the season during Saturday's 1-0 win over Coventry.

"I was pleased to keep the clean sheet," said the 27-year-old. "It's always nice to keep a clean sheet - not just for myself it's a reward for the hard work that all of the lads put into the performance.

"It's been nice to have this extended run of games in the side, it can be difficult to come in and perform to the best of your ability when your in and out of the team - luckily at this moment in time I've been able to get the run that I've wanted.

"I'm working as hard as I can to try and make this spot my own, obviously the longer that we can keep winning matches it will stand me in good stead to stay in the manager's plans in the long-term."
