Colby Bishop looks set for a spell on the sidelines after picking up an ankle injury in Stanley's 1-1 draw with Wycome.

Bishop has started all eight of the Reds' League One matches so far after his summer move from Leamington but was replaced with 16 minutes to go at Adam Park.

Boss John Coleman says the 22-year-old sustained an ankle injury, not ideal for Stanley who are already without Courtney Baker-Richardson and Offande Zanzala because of injury.

Bishop has scored four goals already this season, and struck up a good understanding with Dion Charles who scored the opener at Wycombe, heading in a Jordan Clark cross, a player whose come in for huge praise from the boss.

Coleman said: “I was pleased with the way we defended, I just wish we’d have been better going forward because ultimately that is our strength.

“We are really exciting going forward, Jordan Clark is in the form of his life and Dion and Colby are taking to league football like a duck to water.

“The big blow is that Colby looks like he’s going to be out with an ankle injury. That is a body blow for us but we’ll move on with the players we’ve got.”

Coleman and Wycombc counterpart Gareth Ainsworth are two of the longest serving managers in the EFL.

And the Reds boss said: “You have to take your hat off to Wycombe and Gareth. I’ve always said he’s a great lad, a great footballing person, and I love my encounters with him and chatting football with him.

“He’s a great guy, one of us, has no airs or graces.

“He knows his stuff, knows football and there’s no hot air. It’s refreshing.

“They are where they are for a reason, they’ve been consistent this season. They’ve been picking up points, they were beaten on Saturday and we expected a reaction.

“Gareth didn’t get the reaction he would have wanted in the first half but we expected in the second half when they were kicking towards their own fans.”
