STANLEY boss John Coleman is happy to see his side chipping in with goals from all areas and is pleased to take the burden off Billy Kee.

The Reds frontman was the leading scorer in League Two last term when he struck 26 times as Accrington won the title.

He has netted six times in 15 games this term but four of those have been from the spot, while he missed a penalty in the draw with Portsmouth last time out.

The 27-year-old’s last goal from open play was in the win over Wimbledon in mid September, but Kee has had striking support from elsewhere with Sean McConville weighing in with six goals while Offrande Zanzala has four in his last seven matches.

In total 10 different Stanley players have scored for the Reds this season in all competitions.

The goalscoring threat from across the pitch pleases Coleman but he still wants his men to be more clinical as they head to in-form Coventry City on Saturday.

“We always look as though we are capable of scoring from different areas and we are not overly-reliant on Billy but we have got to look to be scoring more for the chances we create,” he said.

On Kee’s form the Reds chief added: “He has been good and led the line really well, I thought he had a smashing game on Saturday (against Portsmouth).”

Centre back Michael Ihiekwe became the latest Stanley player to find the net this season when he scored against Portsmouth last weekend, with Coleman pleased to see his side find the net from a set piece.

He added: “We spoke about being more dynamic from set plays and attacking the ball and I thought we attacked the ball quite well (against Portsmouth) in both areas.”
