ACCRINGTON Stanley are in for a hard week of training despite reaching the final of the LFA Marsden Trophy.
Manager John Coleman was furious with his side's show against the UniBond Premier Division strugglers where a Chris Butler second-minute goal separated the sides.
"That was not good enough," slammed the boss. "I have cancelled the days off this week. If we play like we did against Bamber Bridge against Forest Green on Saturday in the league then we will have problems.
"We have got ourselves into a fabulous position in the league and I will not let us throw it away. There will be four hard reminders over the next days of how important Saturday is."
It looked like there would be a rout once Butler chipped the keeper for his first Stanley goal. Instead Bamber Bridge then ran the show but Chris Ward and Peter Wright just couldn't finish for the Preston side.
Skelmersdale play Burscough in the other semi final on Wednesday.
