Accrington Stanley boss John Coleman is predicting an entertaining encounter when his side take on Bury in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy tonight.The teams met twice last term, with Bury running out 2-1 and 1-0 winners on their way to promotion from Sky Bet League 2, and the style of football that the Shakers utilised impressed Coleman.
The 52-year-old is now expecting an open game this evening, with the football on offer anticipated to entertain the supporters in attendance at the Crown Ground.
“They are generally good games against Bury,” Coleman said to Accrington’s official site.
“David Flitcroft [Bury manager] plays an attractive style of football and it should be a good game to watch for the neutral.
“They have a big, strong squad and it will be formidable opposition whichever team they play.
“We have played two games against them and they are open, passing matches. Hopefully we will come out on top.”
