Accrington Stanley gaffer John Coleman believes his side has what it takes to save the club from instant relegation back to the Conference.

Stanley were unfortunate in defeat on Saturday against automatic promotion hopeful’s Walsall, losing 3-2 after leading 2-1. It was a great performance from the reds though, in which the Stanley squad gave there all and evenly matched their opposition.

‘They have all given their all and if they keep doing that until the end of the season, we’ll be okay,’ said Coleman speaking to The Lancashire Telegraph.

‘We deserved more than what we got, but that’s football for you. You don’t always get what you deserve.

‘But any neutral coming to this game from a different country would not have known which team was near the top of the league and which team was near the bottom.

‘In fact, they would. They would think we were near the top!’

Stanley have only six games remaining, three on the road and three at home. Starting on Saturday with Peterborough United at The Fraser Eagle Stadium.

‘We’ve just got to win as many games as we can.’ Coleman added.

‘We’ve come to the team who are second in the table and more than acquitted ourselves.

‘If we can do that in the next three away games, that’s not a problem and I’m sure we’ll take something on the road before the end of the season.

‘It’s still in our own hands.

‘We’ve got to take something out of our next home game, that’s for sure.’
