CONFIDENT Accrington Stanley are relishing tomorrow’s clash with Peterborough as they bid to make it three League One wins on the bounce.

That is the view of midfielder Jordan Clark who was on the scoresheet inside the first minute of the Reds 2-1 win over Shrewsbury Town on Boxing Day which lifted them to ninth in the table, seven points off Posh - who occupy the final play-off place - with a game in hand.

Should John Coleman’s men complete a hat-trick of victories then they will be very much in the play-off picture heading into the new year and Clark is relishing the contest.

“Peterborough are above us in the league so it’ll be tough but we’ve won our last two now so we’re feeling confident and we know we can beat anyone on our day,” said the winger.

“We’re at home again so that’s always good. The crowd will play a big factor like they always do. When you need a little push as a player, it’s always good to hear your fans backing you.”

Clark’s goal against Shrewsbury, his second in two games after also finding the net in the 3-0 win at Plymouth last weekend, came after just 25 seconds.

“I couldn’t believe it really,” he said. “Twenty five seconds in a football match is usually just keeping hold of possession and feeling yourself in to the game

“The header from their centre half just dropped perfectly for me to bring down, I saw a bit of space open up so drove in to the box.

“I’m used to being on the right so I was always looking to get the ball on to my right foot. When I’d done that, it just opened up for me and I was able to curl it in to the far corner.”

Clark, who now has six goals for the season, feels that he is developing a goalscoring streak and admitted he was disappointed not to add to his tally against the Shrews.

“I was quite annoyed really that I didn’t score more,” he said. “I had two shots that were almost identical to my one for the goal.

“Unfortunately I was not able to do the same thing and set them wide enough of the goalkeeper so he was able to make a couple of good saves.

“I felt that I definitely should have scored one of those chances. It’s something I’ve been trying to work on.

“As an attacking player, scoring goals is something you should always be looking to do to help the team and take the burden off the strikers.

“I’m glad that I’ve been able to do that the last couple of games and hopefully that can carry on in to the season.”
