STANLEY achieved a top-half finish in League One following a thrilling 4-3 win at Wimbledon on the final day.

Jay Rich-Baghuelou, Colby Bishop and Michael Nottingham were all on target in the first half as the Reds took a commanding lead.

The hosts fought back after the break but John O’Sullivan’s goal was enough to see Stanley finish the campaign on a high.

Despite the result, Coleman bemoaned his side’s defensive errors that he says are driving him “loopy”.

“I’m just catching my breath. That second 45 minutes of football encapsulated our season,” said the Stanley chief.

“We missed loads of chances, conceded a couple of poor goals, had a couple of horrendous decisions go against us, and that’s been happening to us all season.

“The only pleasing thing was that in the past we maybe would have buckled and Wimbledon would have got at least an equaliser, if not a winner.

“We’ve got good defenders. Michael Nottingham on his day can be the best in the league, Ross Sykes is the best in the league.

“They’re good defenders but collectively they’re not and that has to be addressed next season if we want any chance of a top-half finish.

“If we’d scored nine today it wouldn’t have flattered us, but equally if we’d conceded six it wouldn’t have flattered Wimbledon. We’ve got to shake this, it’s driving me loopy.”
