Ready for TV clash: Coley

18 April 2019

John Coleman is relishing Saturday's League One clash in front of the Sky cameras against table-topping Luton Town.

The pair fought it out for the League Two title last season with the Reds coming out on top.

Luton, who have former Stanley defender Matty Pearson in their side, currently lead the way in League One but their 28-game unbeaten run came to an end against Charlton last week.

The Reds won against Walsall in their last game – only their third league victory in 2019 - but are still in a tight relegation battle.

The Sky cameras are at the ground for the Easter Saturday game with a 5.30pm kick off.

“The pressure is still there, it's certainly not done, and we have got to find more points from somewhere,” said Coleman.

“It was pleasing to get the win against Walsall as we needed it and, on the balance of play, I think we deserved it.

“Luton have done incredibly well, ironically we were above them when we played them earlier on in the season, it was never a 4-1 game, it could have finished 5-5, but they were clinical and we didn't take our chances.

“Since then they have been on an unbelievable run and they have been the pick of the bunch for me.

“They are a good side with good footballers who are on a crest of the wave and are used to winning games.

“I like their manager Mick Harford, he is a good footballing man, and they have been outstanding. They have a great chance of getting promoted but we want to delay that on Saturday.

“At the end of the day, it doesn't matter where you are in the table it's 11 v 11.”

The table is tightly packed with 13th placed Shrewsbury on 50 points and 21st placed Wimbledon on 44 points – 16th placed Stanley have 48.

“No one can breathe safely yet. It's the team who are the most clinical and keep their nerve in the games who will stay up. All we can do is focus on the job in hand.”

The game is ALL-TICKET.

Home and away turnstiles are open at 3.30pm with live bands in the home and away Fan Zones.

There is the Beer Happy Hour and free Easter Eggs for U12s with a leaflet.
