Back to business: Coley

19 April 2018

John Coleman says it's 'back to business' after the celebrations of Tuesday night.

Accrington Stanley secured promotion to League One with a 2-0 win over Yeovil but now Coleman says the eye is on the next prize - the League Two title.

Stanley have four games to go starting with Saturday's clash at third placed Wycombe Wanderers as they look to win the top prize.

"There were great scenes on Tuesday night and hopefully we can do it all again if we win the league," said Coleman.

"The lads want to celebrate with silverware but we need to win two games out of our final four against difficult opponents.

"There is a bit of pressure off us now we have been promoted but we want to win the title - it will be an anti-climax now if we don't win the league."

Wycombe, who are going for automatic promotion, will provide tough opposition with their top scorer Ade Akinfenwa an injury doubt. They are on an eight game unbeaten run while Stanley's unbeaten run is now 14 games.

"It will be a tough game, they are a good side and have been on a great run. Gareth Ainsworth has an effective way of playing and it's two teams who will be going for the win, there will be no sitting back.

"The lads have had their party, they deserve it, but now it's back to business. It is in our hands and the lads are keen to go unbeaten until the end of the season.

"But we aren't taking anything for granted. We want to win the league but Luton will have a big say in it. History says it's not a foregone conclusion as last season Doncaster took their foot off the gas and surrendered the title on the last day and we don't want to do that.

"Over the last couple of months we have become a big scalp and the four teams we have to play - Wycombe, Newport, Lincoln and Swindon - they won't lie down, they will make it really difficult for us. We have to find a way to win."
