ACCRINGTON Stanley striker Paul Mullin believes that the Reds are heading in the right direction after snapping up, what he sees to be as three quality players.

John Coleman has turned on his persuasive element by pounching to sign Partick Thistle stopper Kenny Arthur, Burton Albion midfielder Paul Carden and Macclesfield forward John Miles, who all arive on free transfers.

‘Hopefully, the gaffer will be bringing in a couple more players,’ said Mullin speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph.

‘I know he is looking for another centre-half, and another forward player would be nice. The more competition for places, the better.

‘I’ve been impressed with the players we’ve brought in. I remember Kenny when we played Partick Thistle on our pre-season tour and he had a very good game.

‘Obviously, he’s got good credentials because he was in the Scotland squad under Berti Vogts.’

‘John Miles gave us problems when he played for Macclesfield. He’s a good addition and will give us a bit more creativity going forward.

‘I’ve played against Paul Carden a few times and he’s got a lot of experience in the Football League and the Conference.

‘He’s a good addition in midfield and will be a calming influence. His experience should help the likes of Andy Procter and Jay Harris in the middle.’
