LAST week’s dramatic win over Lincoln City provided ideal preparation for tomorrow’s clash with Rotherham, according to Accrington Stanley boss John Coleman.

Two of the three goals the Reds conceded in the seven-goal thriller came from set pieces.

And with Rotherham prominent at set plays, Coleman says there are lessons to be learned from their last game.

“There are things we’ve got to improve on and we will go through that with the players,” said Coleman. “Certainly from set plays - given how many set plays Rotherham have been successful with this season that’s something that we have got to address.”

Stanley had gone from keeping a clean sheet for the first time in nine games in the 2-0 triumph at Shrewsbury to conceding three and winning.

“You end up like Newcastle under Kevin Keegan - ‘We will score more than you’,” Coleman added.

“Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s frustrating. We will always want to score goals. I would like us to tighten up at the back and I think we have done over recent weeks.”

Midfielder Sam Finley and striker Colby Bishop are back in contention. On loan Fulham left back Jerome Opoku is back in training but Coleman will monitor Sadou Diallo.
