JOHN Coleman wasn't too happy with Monday's draw for the fourth qualifying round of the FA Cup.
The manager, who has never been to the first round as a gaffer, had hoped for a team from a lower league. Instead his side face Conference and local rivals Leigh RMI at the Interlink Express Stadium a week on Saturday.
"We didn't want a Conference side but we have a home draw so I suppose we can't complain too much," said Coleman.
"The fact we were at home is the only saving grace. But I have never managed a team into the first round of the FA Cup and it is obviously something I would like to do. To test this side against a league club would be good for the players, fans and the club."
Stanley did defeat Leigh 4-1 earlier this season and they are in something of a crisis, picking up just two points from the last 24 and slipping into the bottom three.
But Hilton Park boss Mark Patterson, a former Stanley player, will no doubt have his side fired up for this one.
