ACCRINGTON Stanley boss John Coleman spoke to Vital Stanley, following the magnificent 3-2 win against Macclesfield Town at the Fraser Eagle Stadium on Saturday.
The gaffer was pleased with the performance of his team who came from behind to snatch a vital three points, a three points that secures Stanley`s League status.
He did reserve a special praise for Macclesfield though, who also came from behind to take the lead in the first half.

“We scored two good goals, and they scored two good goals themselves, for the neutral that`s been a smashing game of football.” Said gaffer John Coleman speaking to Vital Stanley.

“We have gone out there and started the first part of the game well, then maybe got a little bit edgy at 1-0 up. I give Macclesfield a lot of credit to come back from behind and batter us for 20minutes.”

Andy Proctor, the most unlikely of heroes, proved to be just that, with goals at either side of half time to pull Stanley level, then put us ahead.
His second goal a 30-yard screamer, which found the top right hand corner of the Macclesfield goal.

“I would say Andy Proctor has been our best player for the last six-nine weeks. I think he has really matured, and I don`t think he gets the credit that he deserves.

“I had a dream during the week that we won 4-2 and Andy Proctor got a goal.

“That goal was worthy to keep any team up, I think that goal is worthy of keeping a team up in the Seria A.”

Coleman was overjoyed at Stanley`s survival, and admits that surviving a season in Coca-Cola League Two brought better emotions, than when the club won the Conference National title last season.

“I feel Different emotions, today I feel relieved and at the end of last season I felt joy. I don`t know which is best, I would probably say relief is the best emotion.

“I know we’ve hit a couple of lows and we’ve lost a couple of players, had a lot of injuries and had a lot of bad luck with decisions, but through all that the team spirit and their attitude has been first class.

“They’ve been bubbly in training and it even got to the point where Mangy did the team talk before the game, and that’s how relaxed we wanted them!”

There is a God, and he plays for Accrington Stanley, well for the time being at least.
The centre back, Godwin Antwi has kept Accrington`s back-line rock hard since his arrival and is highly rated by players, management and players alike.
Stanley`s loan star is set to return to Liverpool at the end of the season, but Coleman admitted of his attempts to make Antwi a Accrington player permanently.

“We will try and keep him yeah, we have made enquiries, but we`ll just have to wait and see”

Vital Stanley would like to thank John Coleman for the time he spent speaking to us.
