Coley calls on fans

13 February 2018

John Coleman has urged supporters to create another big atmosphere this evening to help carry his side over the line in another vital League Two fixture.

Stanley face Crewe at the Wham Stadium, after playing in front of a record crowd of over 28,000 at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday, however it was the 513 travelling fans who made themselves heard.

Coleman's thanked those fans for their support and called on them make it another loud one when the Reds return to their home turf tonight.

"Saturday was a really good occasion," he said. "There will be a lot of talk about it being a record crowd for League Two, but I thought that our fans were magnificent - forget the numbers, for passion alone they were brilliant.

"When we go to a big stadium they very rarely get out sung, it doesn't half make a difference to the players. They get behind us and they stay behind us.

"We all hope they can replicate that noise and level of support again tonight. We've been doing OK at home and it's crucial that we try and maintain that form until the end of the season. In tight games, they can often make that difference and be that 12th man."

Tickets are still available for tonight's match and you can purchase from the turnstile right up until kick off.
