JOHN Coleman hopes Stanley can put their recent results behind them and go out and enjoy the game against Ipswich tomorrow.

The Reds manager compares his side's results to Jekyll and Hyde.

Coleman wants his team to be spoke of in the same manner as the team that played at Ewood Park against Crewe Alexandra.

"I hope so yes, I think you’re right in that. Sometimes you get focussed on not getting points on the board so it’s a chance to play against a bigger club and hopefully we can turn our form around.

"We’re like Jekyll and Hyde at the moment, not so much with our performances but with the results. It’s a big opportunity for us to get back on track," added Coley.

The Accrington manager has gone on record numerous times about how he wants better attendances at the ground.

"People just seem to get a little blasé, our crowd in the second round against Cheltenham was 1,066," the 56-year-old stated.

"People still talk about us playing at Blackburn’s ground against Crewe.

"It’s in folklore, yet we’re playing these games and we’re getting a thousand at our own ground so there is a blasé about it and about the success that we had last year.

"I think people get carried away and I’m sure the keyboard warriors will be out in force to say what’s going wrong and what a disgrace we are to only be 12th in League One.

"People who live in the real world and know the challenges we have to face, myself and the owner know that," said the Liverpudlian.

Coley isn't keen to rest on his laurels and live in the glory of last season.

"The future is now and it’s not what’s gone on in the past, you can’t bask in your former glories and the people that do generally go down fairly quickly.

"You’ve always got to strive to get better and to improve. We’ve always tried to do that no matter where we’ve finished to season before.

"People saw how well we did and they’re getting us confused with a big hitting league one side – we’ve got the lowest budget in league one so let’s see where we finish," finished the Stanley boss.
