Light up the Wham: Coley

1 October 2018

John Coleman is looking forward to playing under the new floodlights as Stanley take on fourth placed Doncaster Rovers tomorrow night.

The new lights have been put in over the summer and it's the first time the Reds have had a night match this season.

Doncaster will be a tough test for Stanley, having lost just one league game this season and they have chalked up four wins on the bounce.

“They have started the season well, they have some good players and we know one of them well, Mallik Wilks, who was on loan with us last season," said Coleman.

“He did well for us when he was here last season and scored some crucial goals and deserved his League Two championship medal for the part he played.

“He went to Grimsby and it didn't quite work out but he has had a good start at Doncaster.

“They also have John Marquis who is a very good striker, he is exceptional at this level and it's someone we will have to watch.

"Doncaster are a big club, they possibly did not perform as well as they would have liked last season but they are in the top section of the league on merit this season and they are finding ways to score goals and win.

“It's going to be a test for us, for different reasons. They will be analysing us and thinking they can cause us problems and, like every match, we will have to bring our ‘A' game.

“I love night matches, whether playing in games or watching them. There will be people in the new stand for the first time as well so that will be great to see.”
