JOHN Coleman has warned Accrington Stanley must turn their “relegation form” around, and fast.

The Reds are now six games without a League One win after slipping to a stoppage time defeat at home to Wycombe Wanderers tonight.

Stanley took a 15th minute lead through Sean McConville, who reacted after Jordan Clark had a couple of attempts charged down.

McConville had two free kicks expertly saved in either half, while Sam Finley could also have walked away with the matchball.

But despite dominating possession and chances for much of the remainder of the game, and being 1-0 up with 13 minutes to go, Wycombe hit back to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat – hitting the winner in stoppage time.

“We’ve got two points from 18, which isn’t good enough. It’s relegation form and we’ve got to change that round,” said Coleman.

“You get into a rut and you find a way to not win games. It can quickly change but you’ve got to work harder.

“I thought we were outstanding in the first half and had some great chances, possibly should have had a penalty on the stroke of half-time, definitely should have had a penalty in the last minute before they snatched the winner.

“They only had really two shots on our goal, Rochdale probably had only one on Saturday. We’re having to miss too many chances “How we’ve only scored one goal today I don’t know.

“And then the game’s too open. The game’s too stretched at 1-0. With 13 minutes to go, winning 1-0, we’re committing men and we’re just about to make a sub, and then the curse of the substitution happened again and they scored.

“It’s a terrible goal from our point of view, we’re too deep, the ball gets played to the lad’s chest, he’s allowed to control it, turn and put it in the bottom corner.

“And then we’ve set the last one up for them on a plate. It’s individual mistakes and an inability to kill teams off has come back to bite us on the backside again.”

Coleman added: “We’ll never have a better opportunity to get three points than we had tonight but we’ve got to go again. It’s gone now, we’ve got to go again and put things right for the next time we play.

“We’ve got to keep plugging away, we’ve got to strive to be better and work to be fitter and we’ll do that.

“We’ve got to turn it around quickly. Before you know where you are you end up plummeting down the league. They’ve gone above us tonight, how I don’t know. We’ve just got to work hard and believe in ourselves.

“Winning can be a habit and losing can be a habit and we’ve got to get out of this rut.”
