ACCRINGTON Stanley boss John Coleman is backing the current regime to save the crisis club - and then go from strength to strength.
The Reds chief fully expects Stanley - who have to pay a £308,000 tax bill by the end of this month or face being wound up - to come through it and he is looking forward to a time when he can boost his squad.
There is an embargo on the club signing players at the moment due to the finances but he still sees more additions and a big future at Accrington Stanley.
"I have read some of the things said but I have got every confidence in owner Dave O’Neill, chief executive Rob Heys and co-chairperson Marcelle Lazarus to see it through," said Coleman who is in his tenth year at the club.
"They have big plans for the club and I expect them to happen.
"It is off-putting with all these things flying around and it makes it hard as you have to keep the players focused but all we can ask is that people get behind the club and support it.
"My job is to concentrate on the team and win games although I will be doing everything I can to raise money for the club. But once the embargo is lifted and the debt is a thing of the past then I expect the club to go from strength to strength."
He already has his sights on a couple of loan players that will boost his squad.
"I am always looking forward and I believe all we need in this league is to get some consistency. We need to put a mini-run together but, in three seasons in the league, we haven’t done this.
"We haven’t got a great deal to change the team at the moment so I think, once the embargo is lifted and our financial troubles are behind us, we get one or two people in.
"I am looking at players in all positions. A lot of time is doesn’t cost a lot to get players in it’s just, at the moment, we legally can’t."
Coleman was livid after the 1-0 defeat to Chesterfield last Saturday and has demanded an improvement against Cheltenham tomorrow - who are just one place above 14th placed Stanley.
"We have been through the Chesterfield game with the players and they have been left under no illusion that that’s a game we could have got something out of and we need to take these chances.
"A few of the players let themselves down. They have always got to play to the best of their ability and maintain high standards. We have got to learn from that and we have worked on things in training we need to put right.
"We feel we should be higher in the league but then a number of teams will feel that and we have just got to keep going.
"Cheltenham is a massive game for us but we know how we can play and we have got to approach the game in the right way and we can keep getting better. Cheltenham are a good side and will be well-organised with a lot of ability and be strong but we will have a go."
Then there is a fundraising clash with Premier big boys Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday who have said will bring a strong squad as they have no games due to internationals.
A Thursday night match with American side Austin Aztecs follows on Thursday.
"I am looking forward to the Blackburn game," said Coleman. "We can play a few players who haven’t played and they can stake a claim for a place in the side. And I always keep an eye out for their results as I do with all the teams around Accrington.
"The Blackburn and American games are vital games for us and it will be nice to get people to watch."
Chris King has got a tear in his thigh and is out for a month while Leam Richardson is recovering from a pelvic operation and John Mullin is on his way back following an ankle op. Defender Darran Kempson should have got over his thigh strain while keeper Alan Martin is on Scotland Under 21 international duty.
* STANLEY's Johnstone’s Paint Trophy clash with Shrewsbury was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch on Tuesday. "I was disappointed Shrewsbury didn’t go ahead as we wanted to get Saturday out of our system," said Coleman.
