ACCRINGTON Stanley manager believes his side deserved to come away from the Keepmoat Stadium with the point.

Offrande Zanzala scored a late equaliser to earn the point after Jon Taylor had put Doncaster Rovers in the lead in the second period.

Stanley are now five games unbeaten in all competitions as they travel to Bloomfield Road to take on Blackpool on Boxing Day.

"I thought we played quite well in the first without testing their goalkeeper enough," said Coleman.

"We had some great balls into the box and juts couldn’t find that vital touch. We worked really hard, we pressed them, and we took the game to them.

"They’ve scored on the counter because we’re camping out on the edge of their box. That was a body blow.

"I think we’ve matured a bit in the last month because we might have gone under.

"They put us under a bit of pressure after that, but we stood firm and deservedly got the equaliser. I think if anyone was going to get the equaliser, it was going to be us.

"The keeper’s made a world class save off Seamus. We’ve had our customary penalty turned down again.

"I don’t know what we’ve got to do to get penalties anymore because players just seem to be able to trip our players up in the box and nothing happens. It defies belief.

"I think everyone in the crowd thought it was a penalty apart from the referee and this linesman."

Coleman set out a game plan for his side before the game and pleased with the way his players implemented that.

"I think the most pleasing aspect was how hard we worked," Coleman added.

"We came with a game plan, said to press them high up the pitch and pass the ball when we could. I think we lost it a bit with our passing and our control wasn’t as good as what it could be and should be.

"It got away from us again in the second half, but, thankfully, we’ve managed to find a goal and I don’t think anyone can begrudge us a point."
