Stanley boss John Coleman admits he is worried about when his side’s travel sickness will finally come to an end.
With trips coming up against promotion-chasing Rotherham and then a derby against Morecambe at the Globe Arena over the Christmas and New Year period, the Reds chief knows his side need to get that monkey off their backs.
It’s 16 league games since an away win – the last one came in March at Barnet, making for many disappointing trips home in the last few months.
And Coleman admitted: "You start to wonder about the jinx away from home.¿
"If you are not going to win when you have so much superiority away from home, like we did at Underhill last Saturday, then you start to wonder if you are ever going to win."
Coleman felt struggling Barnet were there for the taking on Saturday but, despite all their possession, the Reds finished as 2-0 losers.
And Coleman admits it has left him scratching his head.
He said: "It’s hard to take because we have defended miles better than Barnet but their lads went home with a clean sheet bonus and ours didn’t.
"I said to the lads I would be disappointed with a draw at Barnet so I am sick that we lost.
"It’s frustrating because, and this is no disrespect to Barnet, but if we played this fixture every day until Christmas we would win every one.
"But there is no point saying that you are a better side as they showed they were better than us on the day as they were more clinical with their finishing.
"They took 66 per cent of their chances and we took a strike rate of none.
"Percentage-wise they are far better finishers than us. It’s a worry."
