Accrington Stanley boss John Coleman praises Burton Albion

24 February 2015

Accrington Stanley manager John Coleman has praised Sky Bet League 2 leaders Burton Albion ahead of their clash on Tuesday.

The Brewers are three points clear at the summit after a 3-1 win over Dagenham & Redbridge at the weekend, and are unbeaten in their last 13 matches.

Coleman believes Burton are an example to the rest of the division, and that they have the right man at the helm, in Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

“I like Burton as a club,” said the Stanley boss, who has watched his side go undefeated in their last three outings to sit 15th.

“They are a club with good people running it, they are a well-established club that has made the transition from non-league into The Football League the way it should be done.

“Jimmy had inherited a decent squad [from Gary Rowett] that was challenging at the top end of the table and, to be fair, he has done well and carried it on.

“He is obviously a good manager and knows his stuff. To make your first start as a manager in English football with a club that’s got a great infrastructure, a lovely ground and a fantastic training ground, I can’t see too many people who would complain at that.”
