ACCRINGTON Stanley manager John Coleman knows the 7-1 victory over Bolton Wanderers a couple of weeks ago will have no bearing on the Trophy tie between the two.

The two sides meet in the last 32 of the competition with the winner banking £20,000 and an trip against Fleetwood Town in the last 16.

Stanley come into this tie on the back of a 1-1 draw against Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park in League One.

“It will be a really tough game,” said Coleman.

“They had a decent result on Saturday, coming from behind, and both teams will want to progress in this competition. "£20,000 is a massive bonus for us if we win and it’s a great chance for both teams to get to Wembley.

“The past result won’t have any bearing on this game, in fact it may give more motivation to them, I know myself when you have been in those situations, but it is what it is.

"We won’t think about that game and just concentrate on this one.

“We know they have good players, we have as well, and you need a bit of luck, and it should be a good game.”

Sean Mcconville's goal on Saturday was not enough to hand Stanley the three points on Merseyside and the Reds boss thinks the draw was the fair result.

"“I have watched it again and a draw was probably fair. We started well but did not carry it on," added the Stanley boss.

"It didn’t help losing Sean McConville to injury just before half-time and that’s not to decry Joe Pritchard as he did well, it’s just Sean gives us a different dimension.

"Joe did magnificently defensively but, for the chances we created, we should have done better with them.

“A couple of months ago we would probably have lost this game but we did see it out professionally.”

McConville will miss out on the cup tie against Bolton after picking up a shoulder injury against Tranmere, but captain Seamus Conneely is available again after missing the last game through suspension.

Sam Finley could be available after missing out at Tranmere with illness.
