ACCRINGTON Stanley boss John Coleman has a headache after their pre-season finished in a goals flurry last Saturday.
The Reds chief is looking to finalise his starting line-up for Saturday's Conference opener at Canvey Island.
And some quality performances against Conference North side Stalybridge Celtic will have left him with some serious thinking tonight.
"It is going to be hard but I wasn't expecting it to be easy," said Coleman.
The Reds again had a number of triallists on show with ex-Crewe striker Rodney Jack playing what looks like his final game for the Reds.
Striker Andy Magnan, from Blackpool, impressed while defender Michael Welch from Macclesfield, ex-Blackpool wing back Leam Richardson and defender Danny Ventre were all offered terms after the game.
The Reds were always in charge with Stalybridge offering little threat and it was no surprise when Mangan beat two players, raced to the by-line and set up Anthony Barry for his first Stanley goal on 18 minutes.
Former Burnley forward Phil Eastwood had a couple of half chances but Stanley should have added to their tally before the break. Ian Craney, Paul Mullin, Steve Jagielk, Peter Cavanagh and Barry all made chances but couldn't finish them.
But a set-piece finally gave them some breathing space when a Gary Roberts corner fell perfectly to the head of Mullin who found the back of the net on 53 minutes.
Five minutes later and Mangan was celebrating when a short corner found Craney and he set up the triallist for a goal from eight yards out.
And on 59 minutes, Mullin again found his scoring touch chipping over the keeper after running onto a through ball.
As usual there was the numerous substitutions but it only seemed to make the Reds stronger.
And Paul Cook finished off the scoring with a goal out of nothing three minutes from time.
He got the ball 25 yards out, made space for himself and his strike dipped over the keeper for a wonder goal from the player-coach.
