"Manager for Accrington for tonight - and for always of course - John Coleman." So said the announcer at the Keepmoat Stadium and many more nights like this and Stanley might want the boss to sign up for life, never mind the three years currently on the table.
Coleman has already overseen 11 years at the Crown Ground with a new high every year and Tuesday night at Championship Doncaster can be added to his list of memorable Stanley moments.
Chris Turner instigated the turnaround after the Reds were trailing 1-0 with just seven minutes left - and had a point to prove after starting the season on the bench.
The teenager had only been on the pitch 11 minutes when he equalised to force the clash into extra-time and make the Stanley fans behind the goal go crazy.
And then it was Turner’s initial 25-yard shot which was saved by veteran stopper Neil Sullivan and came out to Craig Lindfield who fired home the much-celebrated winner.
It was a fantastic night to be a Stanley fan beating a side from two divisions higher and who are tipped by some to be strong contenders to be in the Premiership next season.
Okay, they did make seven changes from the side who beat Preston on the opening day of the season but, as Coleman says, you can only beat what’s in front of you and they were all part of a Championship squad.
And for Stanley, who have missed out in this competition before at Watford, Wolves and QPR when their performances deserved so much more, this was something Coleman felt was coming.
And while he took a lot of pride from the trip to the Keepmoat Stadium, he may also have sneakily taken Doncaster’s socks and shorts as Accrington had to borrow them to avoid a kit-clash with Rovers - and they proved lucky omens.
"I do think we bamboozled them with the way we looked in their kit!" he joked.
"But we were possibly due a win like this. We played better than this against QPR and lost, we played better than this against Wolves and lost, we played better than this against Watford and lost. That’s Sod’s Laws isn’t it?
"This result will give the lads a lift but you have to keep your feet on the ground and remember that they had seven changes from Saturday’s win over Preston and you have to temper that with realising it’s not their strongest side.
"But to come here and win against whoever they have got - they are Championship players and I am sure they will all be called upon during the season - it is a boost for us to win.
"I would just like us to have played better to win it as, although obviously pleased with the result, I was slightly disappointed with the performance."
It seems harsh on his side to say this as, at times, the Reds strung together some superb passing movements on a carpet of a pitch - in stark contrast to the Crown Ground surface which has come in for some stick.
Coleman’s 4-2-3-1 formation caused Doncaster problems, with Sean Hessey, Lindfield and Ray Putterill all squandering gilt-edged chances in the first half.
Rovers, though, did have plenty of class on display especially in former West Ham trainee Josh Payne who gave his side the lead just 90 seconds after the re-start. It had a huge slice of luck about it, taking a deflection off Hessey which wrong-footed Alex Cisak and it then seemed like it would be a case of deja vu for the Reds after their previous Carling Cup exploits.
Stanley, after playing so well in the first half, did then sit back with Doncaster forcing more of the pressure and Cisak tipping a number of efforts over the bar.
Coleman had to change things around and made a double substitution on 72 minutes in Turner and Andy Parkinson.
With time ticking down, though, it looked like the Reds Carling Cup adventure could swiftly be over for another year - but then came the late equaliser, celebrated by Turner with a mass scramble in front of the Ultra’s fans.
A corner came out to Hessey who put the ball back in. Phil Edwards headed the ball with Sullivan doing well to push it out but it came to Turner and he tucked it through the keeper’s legs and into the net.
Coleman said: "Chris’s goal was a good one. The keeper has made a good save and then to be able to keep the ball in play and then show the composure to slide it - it was a great finish by Chris and I am made up for him."
While Turner deserved the praise, so then did Stanley’s defence who threw their bodies in front of everything in the final minutes as Doncaster seemed shell-shocked by the turn of events and were on the hunt to make amends.
But the Reds remained firm and suddenly there was an extra 30 minutes at the Keepmoat.
And people were just settling into their seats again when the ball fell to Lindfield six yards out and he belted it home from a tight angle, despite Edwards waiting to pounce on the line.
The ex-Macclesfield man ran half the length of the pitch to celebrate his third Reds’ goal and most vital one.
Coleman admitted: "It was great for Craig to get on the end of that one - it might have taken a deflection - but it’s great to get up and running and it is really important for your strikers to score."
After the Rovers fans had thought their side were cruising, they were suddenly anxious as they knew a cup shock was now on the cards.
Two injuries did then hamper Rovers cause as they ended up with 10 men after using all their subs and Robbie Clark was lucky to stay on the pitch after tugging back Sean McConville when the Reds man was clean through - he was fortunate to survive with a yellow card.
And the underdogs then had to withstand a late barrage with Shelton Martis having a clean shot at goal in the 121st nail-biting minute but fired wide enabling the widely-respected Reds fans another special Stanley moment to add to their ever-increasing list. Bring on Newcastle.
