STANLEY boss John Coleman is wary of Lincoln City’s threats, but insists the Imps will be fearful of the problems the Reds can pose ahead of tomorrow’s Wham Stadium clash.

Stanley need a point from their final two games to clinch the League Two title while Danny Cowley’s side know a draw will mathematically ensure their place in the play-offs.

Lincoln have a reputation as a direct and physical side but Coleman was full of praise for the job done by Cowley who steered his side to the National League title last season and the Checkatrade Trophy this.

“I can only give Lincoln praise, they have been very very good at what they do,” said the Accrington boss.

“It was a brilliant achievement to win the Checkatrade Trophy, it is a brilliant achievement to be in with a chance of promotion.”

Asked whether he would need to set his side up differently to combat the physicality of the likes of Lincoln striker Matt Rhead, Coleman said: “We won’t be looking so much at stopping Matt Rhead, I am sure that Danny Cowley will be sitting down thinking how are we going to stop Billy Kee and Kayden Jackson.

“We have to address what Matt Rhead, Matt Green and Oliver Palmer can do against us and we have to respect that and acknowledge it and find a way of stopping it but we also have to concentrate on what we are going to do going forward. And every team in the league, every team I promise you, fears Billy Kee and Kayden Jackson.”

That gives Coleman confidence heading into the fixture and he believes supporters will be treated to a ‘spectacle of effort’ by two hard working sides.

He added: “They have got a very, very good team who have a big work ethic and that is something that sets them apart, they are a fit set of lads as we are and they work ever so hard as we do.

“The thing they should be praised most for is that they win games, they have won trophies, worked hard and they are successful.

“It will be a clash of styles tomorrow but that will make for an entertaining game because you have got two fit set of lads who will run themselves into the ground on Saturday so people are going to witness a spectacle of effort.”
