STANLEY boss John Coleman is "delighted" with his side’s response following their 3-2 win against play-off hopefuls Wycombe.

Korede Adedoyin, Ross Sykes and Harry Pell were all on target as Coleman’s men twice came from behind to secure all three points.

The Reds finished the game with 10 men after Mitch Clark was shown a straight red card for a late challenge on Dominic Gape.

“I am delighted with the response we showed,” said Coleman. “It was one of the worst games of football I have seen in the first half, both teams were low on confidence with not winning games, trying to get the ball forward as quickly as possible and making mistakes which accounted for the goals.

“After half-time we tried to pass it better, commit more men forward and we made two changes to give us the impetus. Sometimes substitutions work, sometimes they don’t and today they did.

“We got back to playing how I know we can and we scored some great goals. The only bitter taste is the sending off at the end.

“The referee held up six minutes and then, in the 97th, there was the challenge, a debatable red card, when we shouldn’t even have been on the pitch.

“I feel for Mitch as he will miss three games and he has been our best player over the last couple of months.

“But the win was needed. Our home form is important as it’s got us into the situation where we need two wins for safety but we have got to get them and won’t take it for granted.”

The Reds are now unbeaten in their last eight matches at the Wham Stadium and sit 12th in the League One table.

Coleman’s men are back in action on Saturday, March 5 when they head to Fratton Park to take on Portsmouth (KO 3pm).
