STANLEY boss John Coleman says his side came up with the “right formula” in their 2-1 win over Ipswich Town at the Wham Stadium.

The visitors went in front seven minutes before the break when Macauley Bonne slotted past Toby Savin.

But the Reds hit back through Colby Bishop’s close-range finish before Harry Pell completed the comeback with 11 minutes to go.

“I was delighted with the way they played,” said Coleman. “(Ipswich) had one chance in the first half and scored and we thought it was a foul in the build-up to their goal.

“We said to the lads at half-time they had to be more of a threat going forward and we scored a good goal to get back level while our keeper didn’t really have a save to make.

“Then Harry (Pell) was in the right place at the right time for the winner. We changed the formation and came up with the right formula. You don’t always get it right but today we did.

“We have conceded stupid goals recently but we were tight at the back with Seamus Conneely and David Morgan outstanding, and giving us a solid base in midfield. I also have to mention Ethan Hamilton who was superb.

“This win is a small step for us but we have been good at home this season.”

The result sees Coleman’s men climb to 10th in the league table, ending a run of four games without a win.

The Reds are back in action on Tuesday night when they host Leicester City Under-21s in the Papa John’s Trophy (KO 7:45pm).
