STANLEY boss John Coleman has warned his players that they have not yet done enough to guarantee their survival in League One for another season.

The Reds suffered a 2-0 defeat against Doncaster at the Keepmoat Stadium after goals from Josh Martin and Joseph Olowu.

In a lengthy post-game discussion with his players, Coleman labelled their performance as “unacceptable” and vowed to bring about a change in fortunes after back-to-back defeats.

He said: “It looks to me that we have switched off and we think we’ve done enough to stay up but we haven’t. We’ve got to improve. The lads have been told in no uncertain terms that it was unacceptable.

“There are two ways that you can go about it – you can curl up in a ball or you can puff your chest out and do something about it. And I am in the latter camp, that’s for sure. I have to drive those players on and make sure they’re in the same camp as me.

“I warned them at half time that it was sloppy and it looked as though we were playing at 50 per cent capacity. We were lethargic and lazy.

“It didn’t look as though Doncaster had a goal in them but I said to the lads at half time that I’ve seen the end of this film and it ended the way I knew it would.”

The result leaves Coleman’s men 14th in the League One table – 13 points above the drop zone with 13 games to go.

The Reds are back in action on Saturday afternoon when they welcome Wycombe to the Wham Stadium (KO 3pm).
