ACCRINGTON Stanley’s assistant manager believes that the club are still finding their feet in League Two as the Reds enter a third season in the Football League.

John Coleman’s second in command believes that Stanley need to stay consistant throughout the whole season and not let certain times of the season let the club’s league position down.

Bell told BBC Radio Lancashire: ‘The last two seasons we’ve got to a position by November and then faltered after that.

‘We know that at certain times of the season we have got to improve.’

‘I was misquoted a couple of times about Luton. They have been deducted 30 points, that is nothing to do with Accrington Stanley but any advantage you can have over any team in your league could only be a good one,’ he added.

After months of negotiations Accrington signed Blackburn Rovers striker Jamie Clark on loan until January, after the deal was held up as Paul Ince took control of the club, and he made his debut in the Reds’ 3-0 defeat to Burnley.

Bell added: ‘I thought he got off to a great start,’

‘He showed us a lot of glimpses of what he can do. He’s very pacey. He needs to play alongside Paul Mullin a little bit more and I’m sure he’ll improve with that.’
