ACCRINGTON Stanley made it four games unbeaten and have reached the dizzy heights on tenth in the table - and a half-time shouting helped them to it!
Manager John Coleman admitted he gave his side a rollicking at half time as they trailed struggling Margate 2-1.
"It was a horror show in the first half. You can't legislate for all your defenders having an off day in the first half but they did. Fortunately we had harsh words at half time and, all credit to the lads, they bounced back."
Lutel James, playing on the right wing rather than his usual striker role, opened the scoring on 17 minutes after getting on the end of Steve Hollis's cross and firing home from a tight angle.
But Margate then scored two in four minutes. A Terry McFlynn pass split the Stanley defence and new boy Manny Omoyinmi slotted past Jon Kennedy on 27 minutes.
The Reds then failed to clear their lines and Greg Oates fired home from the edge of the area on 31 minutes.
McFlynn then missed an open goal as they tried to capitalise on Stanley's mistakes.
But, after the break, it was all Stanley. They equalised on 54 minutes when a Peter Cavanagh free kick was headed on by Jonathan Smith and James dived in at the far post to make it 2-2.
Then Andy Procter made a stunning run to the by-line and sent in a perfect cross which sub John Durnin converted on 63 minutes - his first goal for Stanley.
"It was good to watch as a neutral but not as a manager," said Coleman. "But I am pleased with the result. That's our first Saturday win of the season."
