Accrington Stanley gaffer John Coleman says Paul Mullin has silenced his critics following a man of the match performance on Saturday as Stanley drew 2-2 with Promotion hopeful’s Lincoln City.

The Stanley skipper has had his critics during this seasons campaign, but after taking his tally to 10 for the season John Coleman doesn’t understand. And neither do we!

Speaking to the Lancashire Evening Telegraph, Coleman had this to say, ‘I’m delighted for Paul because he’s been through a barren spell. That’s two in two and hopefully he can keep that going next Saturday.

‘Paul Mullin has his detractors and I don’t know why. I think the people who criticise him shouldn’t have the right to vote.

‘Anyone who criticises his attitude, endeavor or his ability doesn’t know much about football, and while they pay their money and they’re entitled to their opinion, I would prefer it if they kept it to themselves.

‘We never signed Paul as a goalscorer. We signed him to lead the line and I think we are the envy of everyone in the Football League who would love Paul Mullin to lead their line.

‘That’s why I scratch my head when I hear his detractors.’

Coleman went on to say ‘Paul is the envy of every club in the Football League’.
