Defender Tom Aldred has said he feels Accrington Stanley are making progress and that we’ve showed differing signs of that in our last two games.

Speaking to the Official Site following the hard earned victory over Plymouth, the 24 year old explained.

‘Defensively, we showed our grit and determination against Plymouth. Our defensive work was brilliant and we battled well together, kept our shape and got through. At Northampton, it was all about our attacking flair but against Plymouth it was about getting in front and keeping the lead.’

With on loan keeper Aaron Chapman making his debut, Aldred also had praise for him saying that it was an impressive debut and that he more than played his part in helping to keep us in the game against Plymouth so our goal counted for everything and he backed Kal Naismith to always come up with a goal when we needed one and he doesn’t believe it will be the only time this season he’s a match winner.

With it now four wins for the season, and two consecutive for new returning gaffer John Coleman, Aldred said that although our start to the season could’ve been better and everybody did want it to be better, ultimately he feels where we are at the moment is a credit to the hard work of everybody involved over the last 18 months.

‘When you think of our start last season, it’s been a slow rebuilding process from there but we are getting it right.’
