Stanley boss John Coleman felt his side were in control for most of their 1-1 draw against Barrow but admits they didn’t do enough in the final third.

The Reds took the lead in the 36th minute. Tommy Leigh’s ball was headed down by Jay Rich-Baghuelou, it deflected off a Barrow player and Sean McConville was there to tap the ball over the line.

But the visitors rescued a point late on when Junior Tiensia fed the ball into Emile Acquah and he fired the ball into the far corner of the net.

“It was a strange game,” said Coleman. “I think Barrow surprised us a bit by letting us have the ball.

“We scored a bit of a fluke goal, Sean was in the right place at right time.

“We were 1-0 up and pretty comfortable at the start of the second half, but you know a team who are getting beat 1-0 will change their shape, commit more men forward and then we have to be able to get our foot on ball and exploit them on the break.

“Their goal has come from us being one-on-one and it was their only shot on our goal which has gone in, but we didn’t have too many on theirs.

“Obviously with them scoring so late we are disappointed. The game was there for the taking and it eluded us.

“We were in big control for long periods without hurting them and that’s our problem at the moment.”
