ACCRINGTON Stanley manager John Coleman insists his side is good enough to score more goals in League One.

Coleman added that if the law of averages is correct then his side should be expecting goals sooner rather than later.

Not scoring annoys the Stanley, who highlighted his side are getting in to the correct positions but are just not finishing their chances.

"It’s annoying really because it doesn’t reflect the number of chances that we’ve made," stated the Stanley manager.

"You go through flat spells and you have to keep on battling away to get through them, you can’t get too despondent about it.

"We are making enough chances, it’s just that we’re not taking them.

"If the law of averages is correct then at some point, we should five or six goals going in for us.

"You’ve just got to keep going. The players are always trying to score – they don’t miss on purpose.

"We’re doing the right things to get in to those areas, maybe our technique just hasn’t been quite right."

Coleman knows his players are good enough to end this run of six league games without a goal, he says they just have to keep working hard.

"We’ve got good enough players to score goals, so you’ve just got to keep battling away," highlighted Coleman.

"I’ve said it before, it’s sods law really, we’ve waited all this time for a goal and then when we get one, they’ll be coming like busses."

Last season Stanley scored an impressive 76 goals on their way to being crowned League Two champions.

This time around they are currently stuck on 27 goals and have scored the joint lowest amount of goals in the league at their own ground with 13.

The Reds are performing slightly better away from home on the goals front as they have managed to notch 14 goals.

Striker Billy Kee was a massive figure in the clubs promotion last season having scored a brilliant 25 goals in League Two.

Kee is finding life harder in League One as he is on seven league goals so far in this campaign.

John Coleman has turned to the January transfer window in order to try and correct where his side had been failing.

The Liverpudlian brought in Paul Smyth on loan from QPR until the end of the season.

Smyth, a Northern Irish international, has 16 senior goals in 33 appearances for the three clubs he has represented.

Coleman signed another striker in Luke Armstrong, who is also on loan until the end of the season.

The Middlesbrough loanee's only senior goals came for non-league side Gateshead when he scored 10 in 16 appearances.

Stanley sold striker Kayden Jackson to Championship side Ipswich Town in August 2018.

The 24-year-old played a key role in Stanley's promotion from League Two as he scored 16 goals himself.
