Stanley win Performance of the Week award

26 April 2018

Accrington Stanley have been given the LG Performance of the Week Award by the League Managers Association.

The LMA's five-man panel, comprised of chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry, determined that the award should go to Stanley following their 4-0 victory against third-placed Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday 21st April 2018.

The Reds moved a step closer to a historic Sky Bet League Two title after their emphatic 4-0 win at Adams Park.

Kayden Jackson, Scott Brown, Sean McConville and a 94th minute Offrande Zanzala penalty – his first ever league goal – sealed the memorable win.

Luton drew at Carlisle to win promotion themselves and they are the only team who can now catch the Reds at the top of the table – but Stanley need just a single point from their final two matches to secure the title.

The experienced and highly distinguished LMA panel has managed a combined total of over 6,000 competitive matches in professional football.

Stanley manager John Coleman will receive a celebratory bottle of champagne, courtesy of Tanners Wines, and an LG Performance of the Week trophy in a presentation to commemorate the result.
