Stanley set for relegation scrap

The Reds have lost their last four matches, with Saturday’s home game with Northampton Town ending in a humiliating 5-1 defeat. It leaves Coleman’s team just five points clear of the League Two relegation zone, and he insists that survival is now the aim this season.

Coley: We don't need hired gun

Stanley have scored just four goals in their last seven matches, leaving them 15th in the League Two table.

Coley confirms Einstein theory

Stanley were beaten 3-0 by Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park last Saturday, passing up a host of opportunities and conceding soft goals along the way.

Promotion can be our revenge

Yeovil scored two late goals to win Tuesday night’s second-round replay at Huish Park and deny the Reds a dream tie at home to Manchester United in the third round.

Coley puts cup dreams on hold

The draw for the third round was made on Monday night so Stanley travel to Yeovil for Tuesday’s replay knowing that if they win, United will visit Accrington on the weekend of January 3/4.
