Stanley boss John Coleman is eager to build on his side's 2-1 win at Salford as they aim to continue their positive start to life back in League Two.

Shaun Whalley and Josh Andrews were on target in the first half at the Peninsula Stadium.

Ryan Watson pulled one back late on from the penalty spot but the Reds held on to secure all three points on the road.

Coleman said: “I think that’s the best we’ve played. We had a set plan that we were going to sit in second half but we didn’t. In the second half, we should have scored another couple but didn’t.

“A nervy couple of minutes when they got the penalty but the lads have seen it out.

“I can’t fault anybody, there were some big performances in there and we should have got that third.

“That game plan was a long time in the making and we come up with a game plan that we practiced in training.

“We were going to try and stifle them and force them into areas that favoured us and consequently it worked because we took the ball off them in dangerous areas.

“When we do that we’re really good because we counter really well and we did that today, made numerous chances, and thankfully a couple went in.”

The result leaves Coleman's side third in the table, having taken 10 points from their opening five matches.
