What a fantastic Saturday, an away win at last and a clean sheet to add to the festive merriment.
The Reds’ first away win since February lifts us above AFC Wimbledon in the league for the first time this season and into joint 13th place just six points off a play-off place.
Accrington Stanley are starting to see the light and we are now five games unbeaten in the league, with back-to-back clean sheets.
The style of football that John Coleman and Jimmy Bell want to play is becoming more apparent in this latest batch of Stanley players.
When you see how it has taken a while for the new lads to fit into the Stanley system you cannot help but wonder what would have happened had cash been available to keep hold of last year’s squad.
The facts money, our management duo has to unearth new talent for other clubs to snatch away each year.
Padraig Amond and Bryan Hughes are just two of the latest batch of talent that the Stanley management duo have brought to the club.
I am being a tad unfair singling out only two of the present squad as there are many more that deserve a mention but Padraig and Bryan have that certain something about them that attracts attention.
This Saturday will be a tough home game with Torquay United making the long trip to face the Reds. If we can keep a clean sheet and win by the odd goal I will be a very happy chap.
