Stanley boss John Coleman reckons his side will have a good chance of beating the drop if they can replicate their display during the opening hour of their 3-1 defeat against Leeds in the FA Cup fourth round.

Jack Harrison, Junior Firpo and Luis Sinisterra were all on target for the Premier League side at the Wham Stadium.

Leslie Adekoya pulled one back for the Reds with a clinical finish nine minutes from time – the youngster’s first senior goal.

Coleman felt there wasn’t much in the game during the opening 45 minutes but says the visitors’ quality eventually shone through.

The manager said: “They’re a top team Leeds aren’t they? You wouldn’t have known there were two divisions between us in the first half.

“But I just think their quality showed in the last 35 minutes and that’s when the game was won and lost really.

“If we can play like we did for an hour in the rest of our league games we should have a good chance of staying up.”

He added: “Just because someone drives a better car and lives in a bigger house than you, it doesn’t mean they’re going to be better on a Saturday.

“But Leeds are a very good side and when they get it right they can blow teams away.”

The Reds are back in League One action next weekend when they host Lincoln City.
