Coleman concerned with form

8 March 2019

John Coleman admits he is concerned by Stanley's league position, but says he is more concerned with his side's form.

Stanley are 15th in League One, one of four teams on 41 points, just four points above the drop zone having picked up five points from their last six games.

The Reds have scored 35 league goals this season, despite averaging over 12 shots a game, and the boss says it is something his side needs to address.

"There's always a concern about the league table. Anyone who says there isn't is a liar," said Coleman.

"From the first time a league table gets assembled to when it finishes, you're always looking at the teams around you. I'm always concerned about our league position, but my bigger concern is the form of how we play.

"If you get your form right then that correlates to a better league position.

"I know the job that we're doing is solid and sound and is done in the right way with the best interests and the best intentions. We've got good honest people here at the club, from the top to the bottom, and we'll always continue to try and get what we think we deserve.

"Making chances this season hasn't been the issue, it's been taking them. You can keep making chances and keep being prepared to miss them in the hope that you're going to score, or you can just curl up into a ball and hide in the corner.

"That's not us, so we'll keep going and we'll keep trying."

Stanley travel to promotion hopefuls Barnsley tomorrow, kick-off at 3pm.
