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.

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

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.

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.
