Coley ready for FA Cup draw

22 October 2018

John Coleman is ready for the Emirates FA Cup first round draw tonight, which will take place at 7.10pm on BBC2.

The Reds lost to Guiseley in a replay last season - with Jonny Maxted making the switch to Stanley after those games, following two penalty saves.

Coleman's men have had historic FA Cup runs in the past, with 2003 their most famous run after the then Conference side beat Huddersfield and Bournemouth before losing to Colchester on penalties - and this enabled them to go full-time and eventually return to the Football League.

"Someone asked me who I fancied in the FA Cup and I said the lowest ranked team," said Coleman. "They pointed out that we are ranked joint third so everyone else is below us.

"Accrington Stanley with only three teams ranked above them in the FA Cup - that's amazing."

Stanley are ball number one tonight, with the first round scheduled for the weekend of 9th November.
