JOHN Coleman’s match reaction to Accrington Stanley’s Pre-Season 1-1 draw with Darwen at the Anchor Ground, which saw him cast the rule over a number of trialists.

Coleman told the Lancashire Telegraph: “It`s difficult. There were 16 or 17 trialists there.

“You see it as a friendly but you don`t see it as a friendly because it`s not your team.

“Possibly looking at so many of them, you cannot see the woods for the trees.

“But there were some good, promising things out there tonight and a good workout for some of the lads.

“You cannot judge anyone on 45 minutes of football – but you don`t want to give them too much at this stage of pre-season.”
