IT WAS job well done for Accrington Stanley's final pre-season games in Scotland.
Striker Paul Mullin came through two tough tests and got on the scoresheet for the first time this season while the performances of keepers Ian Dunbavin and Rob Elliot gave manager John Coleman something of a headache.
Stanley were unlucky to lose in Saturday's match at newly promoted First Division side Partick Thistle.
The Reds did have to weather something of a storm in the first half with nippy striker Stephen McConalogue and the tall Pat Keogh testing the Reds backline.
Dunbavin pulled off a good low save to keep out Keogh but he could do nothing about Scott McCulloch's free kick which took a deflection off Michael Welch and curled into the top of the net.
Coleman had a go at half-time and Stanley then started pressing the Scottish side.
Ian Craney tried to chip keeper Kenny Arthur from the half-way line but it was just wide. But then Arthur faced a barrage as Sean Doherty, Mangan and Todd all came close with the goalie pulling off a superb double close range save from Todd and Mangan.
On Monday, Stanley travelled from Glasgow to Edinburgh to face East Fife and this time the goals flowed.
There was only three minutes on the clock when Sean Doherty scored his third goal of the pre-season by firing home from Joel Byrom's pass.
Paul Ritchie equalised for Fife on nine minutes but David Brown scored after keeper John Dodds made a mistake and the striker tapped the ball into the empty net.
Mangan scored the third just before half time with a solo goal and Mullin celebrated his first goal of pre-season after Gary Roberts set him up nine minutes from time.
