JOHN Coleman insists Sheffield Wednesday will see “a different Accrington Stanley” ahead of tonight's trip to Hillsborough.

The Owls left the Wham Stadium with all three points when the sides met back in November thanks to goals from Chey Dunkley, Theo Corbeanu and Florian Kamberi.

Coleman believes his side are now a tougher nut to crack and wants them to build on recent performances.

“I watched Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday so we know what to expect,” he said. “We lost 3-2 to them in November, it sounds like a close game but it wasn’t as close as the result suggests. 

“They will see a different Accrington Stanley tomorrow night. We are finding a comfortable feeling about the way we are playing at the moment, the patterns of play are coming naturally which means the players are going to play better.

“We are looking strong and we have to try and carry it on into every game, regardless of the opposition. We are going in the right direction but we are far from the finished article.

“It is always hard to win away from home, three wins is a concern, but you can’t moan about it and dwell on it.

“You have to try and improve on it, we have got to keep trying to apply ourselves and coming up with a game plan. 

“The last away game at Rotherham was a classic away performance and I am bitterly disappointed we didn’t get anything at Rotherham, who are nine points clear at the top.

“We have three away games now and we would like to take something out of all those games.”

Stanley enter the game on the back of a comfortable 4-1 win against Crewe thanks to goals from Tommy Leigh, Sean McConville and a brace from Ross Sykes.

Coleman’s men sit 13th in the League One table - nine points behind the Owls, who are looking to climb into the top six.
