While some Stanley fans had been getting worried about their side’s start to the season, boss John Coleman was keen to point out a fact.
Last year the Reds made the play-offs and, with five league games gone, had seven points.
This season, Stanley have five league games under their belt and they have seven points again.
Okay, last season Coleman’s side were unbeaten at this stage and had, what was considered, a group of tried and tested players who were used to performing at this level.
But the Reds boss has always said he’d prefer to win one, lose one than go unbeaten with two draws as that gets you more points and so Stanley are on the right track.
It has been gradual but Coleman has assembled a new-look squad which is growing in strength and where there is now competition for places.
And the goals are going in with Burnley loanee Wes Fletcher scoring twice in three games and Dean Winnard getting his traditional goal against Burton on Saturday.
"We do not get too high if we win or too low if we lose as we know we just have to keep working hard," said Coleman.
"We know if you work hard you eventually get your rewards.
"We had seven points at this stage last season and you need to get the points as quickly as you can so if we can get a couple more wins we can start threatening at the top of the table.
"Wes could have scored a hat-trick and both finishes for the goals were superb.
"And it’s not often we come from behind, so that’s pleasing too. It’s a joy to play in this league."
One person who was relieved to make his League Two debut was Padraig Amond.
The 23-year-old has been pre-season training with the Reds but needed a loan deal arranged with his Portuguese side, as well as international clearance.
The move has been on and off but the lively Amond showed why Coleman patiently waited to get his man.
"It has taken a long time as there were a few things to clear up in the deal," said the Irishman, who has also been at ex-Red Paul Cook’s Sligo which is where the connection to Accrington came.
"I enjoyed playing in Portugal but I am not one to sit on the bench, I want to be playing as it’s only a short career.
"The language was also a problem although¿I am willing to go back at the end of my loan spell at the end of the season, if necessary.
"But I just want to make the most of my time here.
"I have never played in the league in England and it’s been a dream of mine to do that. It’s all new to me but it’s great to make my debut.
"I felt I did okay and got a decent reception when I came off and that’s always nice.
"Accrington Stanley is a new chapter in my career and I want to give 100 per cent, score a few goals and it’s nice to start off with a win."
Another making his Reds’ League Two debut was Danny Coid and Coleman admitted he did think it wasn’t going to be Stanley’s day when the midfielder’s shot hit the inside of the post and bounced out.
Paul Peschisolido’s side were already leading after a good finish by top striker Justin Richards.
Adam Bolder’s ball over the top caught out the Stanley defence and Richards was clever to beat the off-side and leave himself one-on-one with Sean¿Murdoch before a smart finish six minutes before the interval.
Then after the break there was good work from Amond which set up Coid and he was turning to celebrate when his strike hit the inside of the woodwork but somehow bounced out of the goal.
"You do begin to wonder if it’s going to be your day when that happens," admitted Coleman. "It’s rare a ball hits the inside of the woodwork and bounces out and you do start to question things."
But he needn’t have worried. His side had more of a spring in their step after the break and capitalised when Burton gave away a needless free kick on the left.
Sean Hessey whipped in a dangerous low cross and Winnard raced in at the near post to flick the ball home for his first goal on the season.
"I have been asking the players for the last few seasons to attack the ball more and it shows what happens when you do." said the Reds chief.
As Coleman said, Stanley are not renowed for coming from behind but, after that 72nd minute equaliser, they had the bit between their teeth.
But it was a solo effort which clinched the Reds’ second win of the season.
With nine minutes to go, Winnard’s ball forward for Fletcher was inch-perfect but he still had a lot to do with Ryan Austin in attendance.
However he used his strength to outmuscle the defender and get a shot in from a tight angle on the right to fire home the winner.
"I didn’t think I could score from that angle," said youngster Fletcher who is hoping to catch the eye at parent club Turf Moor with his match-winning goals.
Defender Winnard meanwhile, who thankfully survived a late penalty appeal for handball by the Brewers, was pleased with his double contribution of a goal and an assist.
The right back said: "The goal was pretty much identical to the one I scored against Burton in the final game of last season.
"Then I played a nice little ball down the line for the second one that I’m really pleased with. I saw Wes Fletcher making the run and I don't get many assists so it was just as pleasing for me to get that."
But manager Coleman will be hoping if Winnard continues to score then he changes his goal celebration.
"I don't like his sliding on his knees celebration – it's an injury waiting to happen."
And injuries are something Coleman can do without as he looks to build on this win and move the Reds up the table.
