John Coleman praises Accrington Stanley's Shay McCartan

23 October 2014

Accrington Stanley boss John Coleman hopes Shay McCartan can build on his first Sky Bet League 2 brace.

Former Burnley striker McCartan grabbed his opportunity in a rare start by scoring twice during the 3-1 win at Hartlepool United on Tuesday night.

"Shay has worked hard in the last three or four weeks and we kept telling him he would get an opportunity," said Coleman.

"He took his chance and his first goal was spectacular and his second was bread and butter so he had a bit of both.

"Hopefully he will kick on from there."
