Should Accrington manage to keep another clean sheet on Saturday then manager John Coleman will be forced to uphold his end of a bet made during pre-season.

Coleman told Scottish ‘keeper Kenny Arthur that he would wear a kilt if he could keep three successive clean sheets in League Two, and having done this in his last two he is looking to keep his third against Gillingham on Saturday: ‘A clean sheet on Saturday could lead me into a problem,’ Coleman told the Lancashire Telegraph. ‘In the summer, I promised Kenny Arthur that I’d wear a kilt if he kept three clean sheets in the league on the bounce.

‘So if he keeps a clean sheet at Gillingham, I’ll be wearing a kilt to Exeter!’

Arthur has so far shut out Port Vale and Macclesfield, and although doing this again in order to see Accrington pick up points against Gillingham will be more important to the club, the side issue of seeing Coleman in a kilt (maybe not a good thing!) will be added incentive to spur Arthur, and the rest of the team on.

Do you think that Kenny Arthur can manage that third successive clean sheet this weekend?
