ACCRINGTON Stanley manager John Coleman has warned his players that there will be ‘big changes’ at the Crown Ground when the tranfer embargo is lifted.

Things off the field aren’t looking very good for the Reds, with a winding up order stating that the club must raise £308,000 to keep going, and with half of the alloted time gone already, the club are only £90,000 up.

On the field though things seemed to be improving as the Reds surged up the table following wins over the likes of Darlington and Crewe Alexandra, and found themselves in 12th, but following a last minute defeat away at Chesterfield, Coleman wasn’t impressed.

He told the Lancashire Telegraph: “The performance was a million miles away from what I want and if it doesn`t improve, as soon as the embargo is lifted, four or five of them won`t be here.

“I don`t think they put the right effort in, I don`t think they tried to think about the game. I think they tried to play off the cuff and I think we were selfish with some of our play.

“Once we get to the 92nd minute, the way we conceded was a joke. It didn`t look like the last minute of an important league game, it looked like the 10th minute of a Sunday League friendly.’

The gaffer also felt that the side were let down by ‘four or five members of the team’ during the defeat, and even went on to say that they wouldn’t even be at the club in a few weeks time if he had a larger squad.

Tough words.
