'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Opposition View - Accrington Stanley


Following yesterday's 1-1 draw at Accrington, here are some views on the game from Stanley boss John Coleman and a few of their fans.


The Stanley manager was naturally delighted at salvaging a point with virtually the last kick of the game.

"Our fans are probably going home feeling like it's a victory but we have got to learn from our mistakes and improve our shooting as we're missing the target far too regularly for my liking," said Coleman.

Thankful for Wycombe's failure to close the game out, he added: "We could have ended up with no points. They had chances to kill the game off but they didn't and we kept going."

"For 20 minutes they were the better team. They scored in that period, which we hadn't in our hour, but fair play to the lads they've got a little bit of character about them, and what's happened to Wycombe today - I lost count of the amount of times it happened to me last season."

"On the balance of the game I think we probably deserved a point."

"If one game could sum up my time at Accrington, this would be it,' said Coleman. 'We were magnificent at times and woeful at other times. But we have a healthy squad here and we are still unbeaten in the league."


The Accrington fans also felt their side deserved a share of the spoils.

The following extracts are taken from Accrington Web and The Football Forum.

'A tough game today against a team who will be there or thereabouts. It was open & enjoyable with Stanley perhaps having the lion's share of the game but Wycombe probably having the better chances.'

'Wycombe certainly won the physical battle against our young and small side, but offered little going forward. The referee was pretty poor and should have made more of an effort to locate his cards. Overall, we were wasteful in front of goal and didn't play anywhere near our top level. All in all, a fair draw.'

'Wycombe were a damn good side and closed the reds down really well. Overall a game of two halves I thought - Stanley 1st half - Wycombe 2nd. A draw was about right. Most pleasing to me was the way the reds never gave up, I think in previous seasons we would have lost - the spirit is tremendous.'

'Tough day today. We had Ray Putterill out which really didn't do us any favours going forward. We were wasteful in front of goal and didn't play anywhere near our best.'

'We could and perhaps should have scored in the first half, but fair do's, Wycombe had the lion's share of the second half, but we never gave up, right up to the last minute of time added on. Wycombe's goal should not have stood, clearly 2 balls on the pitch after the throw-in had been taken.'

"I thought this was a cracking game and a good advert for L2 football! Let's not forget this Wycombe team were in L1 last season and with a bit more luck we could have won. Their keeper was the busier of the two and kept them in the game with some excellent saves.
