JOHN Coleman has spoken of his delight at Accrington Stanley’s ‘magnificent win’ over high flying Shrewsbury Town at the Fraser Eagle Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Terry Gornell bagged his third goal in three games for Stanley and is well and truely finding his scoring boots now at the Fraser Eagle Stadium after joining on loan from Tranmere Rovers last month.

Paul Mullin nodded home a second goal for a Stanley side that had previously gone eight games without a win in the league. Ben Davies pulled one back for the visitors but it wasn’t enough and Coleman’s men hung on to a record a second victory in two games after a eight game winless run.

‘It was a magnificent win especially against a team who are possibly favourites for the league,’ said the Reds boss to Lancashire Telegraph.

‘We maybe carried a bit of belief from our win over Luton on Saturday and that saw us through. We scored two really good well-worked goals but Shrewsbury are strong going forward and to limit them to not too many chances is testament to how well we defended.

‘We did need that third to ease our nerves a bit but didn’t have too many scarey moments. We played some excellent football.’
