DEFENDER Darran Kempson is not often a goal hero - but admits he did enjoy his winner against Lincoln.
The 24-year-old got on the end of Jimmy Ryan's free kick and headed the ball home in the 51th minute.
"It seemed to take an age to go in," said the centre-half. "But to come away with a win is good and a goal for me is a bonus.
"My job is really to keep clean sheets but I like to chip in and I was pleased when it went in.
"The bookmakers have tipped us to go down but football is full of surprises and we don't really take much notice of that. We are a good side and we have got a good team spirit here."
It was Stanley's first win over Lincoln in seven attempts and they deserved it with John Miles and Paul Mullin both squandering chances before Alan Martin had to pull off two wonder saves at the death to make sure Stanley picked up their first three points of the season..
"We didn't kill the game off and, in the last 10 minutes we panicked abit, they had a few chances and that's not good for my heart," said Reds boss John Coleman.
Lincoln boss Peter Jacksonwas not happy."They deserved to win and we were poor. We were sloppy from a set-piece and we are all disappointed."
STRIKER Billy Kee missed the game with a knee injury picked up in training. He is a doubt for Tuesday night's home game with Northampton.
