More celebrations! Coley

16 March 2018

John Coleman hopes there are five more winners' hours at the Wham Stadium this season – which should mean promotion to League One.

Stanley have won their last seven home games which has led to party-time at the sports bar after the game as players and management mingle with fans with reduced priced drinks and a band.

The Reds have the chance to equal their League Two record of eight straight home wins from the 2010/11 season if they overcome Forest Green Rovers tomorrow.

And, as Stanley have five home games left this season, Coleman knows if there are more happy hours, then the Reds should be up.

“The fans are fantastic and they are getting louder and more vocal as the season has gone on,” said Coleman.

“I think since we started having winners' hour in the bar, we haven't stopped winning so long may it continue.

“It's great, it's what makes us unique in that fans and players get to talk and celebrate after games together as we are all in it together. I think it's what makes this club so special.”

Stanley's campaign fell flat two seasons ago when the Reds lost out on automatic promotion by one goal – they failed to score at home for the first time that season on the final day which dropped them into the play-offs, losing out to AFC Wimbledon.

“We still have some players here who were bitterly disappointed by that and will be striving to not feel like that again," added Coleman.

“We know what's ahead of us, there will be nerves, but we have to use it to inspire us and not hinder us. Each game you tick off is closer to the prize.”
