STANLEY boss John Coleman was delighted with his side’s attacking play following their 4-1 win at Fleetwood in the Papa John’s Trophy.

Harry Pell opened the scoring with a stunning strike after 23 minutes, but the hosts hit back through Ged Garner’s penalty.

Coleman’s men regained the lead on the stroke of half-time through another superb effort, this time from Ethan Hamilton.

After the break, Tommy Leigh added a third with a composed finish before Michael Nottingham wrapped up the result with an emphatic header.

Stanley had already booked their place in the next round but the win sees them finish top of Group G, having won all three matches.

“I thought we played well,” Coleman told the club's YouTube channel. “Obviously they had a much-changed side - sometimes it takes a bit of getting used to.

“But I thought it was a good game, a very entertaining game. Both teams making chances, having shots and playing some good football.

“All round, the people who came got their money’s worth.

“I don’t think I’ve seen two goals as good as (Pell and Hamilton’s) in that same game. Two absolutely outstanding goals.”

Coleman’s men are back in action when they welcome Plymouth to the Wham Stadium on Saturday afternoon (KO 3pm).

Ryan Lowe's side sit second in the League One table - just one point behind leaders Wigan.
