ACCRINGTON Stanley’s Callum Johnson highlighted how clean sheets are what his side go into a game wanting to achieve and they now have two on the bounce.

Wins against Blackpool and Burton Albion have been met without reply up the other end.

Johnson wants his Stanley team mates to carry on doing what they are doing while on this seven game unbeaten run.

“Obviously clean sheets are something that we want when we go into games and I had an interview not long ago and I remember talking about how long it had been since we had one clean sheet so it’s obviously good to get two on the spin,” said Johnson.

“We also said that there’s a lot of games in the Christmas period and it’d be a good opportunity for us to pick up a lot of points at the time.

“We’ve done well winning two on the bounce. We just need to carry on doing what we’re doing.

After playing twice in three days, Stanley only have until Wednesday until they play again when they welcome Rochdale to the Wham Stadium.

“You just want the games to come thick and fast and that’s what they have done,” added the right-back.

“We’ve got a game again in a few days’ time against Rochdale, it’s another massive game and a chance for us to pick up a lot of points in a short space of time.

“It is difficult, but you’ve just got to prepare right and do everything right off the pitch.

“They look after us in training well with the recovery sessions and you’ve got to look after yourself as good as you can, so you go into the games feeling good.

“It’s a mental thing as well. When you’re winning games, you go into them and you feel good.”

Stanley will go eight games unbeaten if they are to avoid defeat on New Year’s Day and Johnson wants his side to carry on doing what they are doing.

“I think we just need to continue on the run. Like the gaffer says, it’s harder getting on the run than it is to stay on it,” said Johnson, who recently made 100 appearances for Stanley.

“We’re on it now and we just need to keep it going as long as we can. We’re keeping clean sheets and creating chances like we have been doing.”
