Coley aims for a happy Valley

18 January 2019

John Coleman is relishing a trip to Charlton Athletic tomorrow.

It's the first time Stanley have visited The Valley and they will be looking to get back to winning ways after three League One games without a victory.

“I watched Charlton's last two games and they were two totally different styles, against Shrewsbury and Sunderland,” said Coleman.

“They are a handful, they have good strikers and it's up to us to come up with a plan to beat them.

“I am really looking forward to it. It's a nice stadium, the pitch will be lovely and we should be able to get our passing game going.”

Charlton are managed by Lee Bowyer and drew 1-1 at the Wham Stadium earlier in the season, with Jordan Clark scoring a late equaliser.

Coleman is frustrated that Stanley, who are in 14th place, bottom of a group of five teams on 35 points, have had the third most chances in League One but are not higher in the league with more goals scored.

“It is frustrating. We have made a lot of chances and lost or drawn games we should have won.

“The big thing is we are creating chances and we have to keep going, keep believing and keep working hard on finishing in training.

“Hopefully we will take more of our chances in the second half of the season.

“The table is really tight and we want to get enough points to secure League One football next season, that's our priority.

“We need to try and get as many wins on the board as possible as soon as possible.

“Every time, we go to try and win games, we never go for a draw and we will be going to The Valley to try and win.”
