Accrington Stanley's John Coleman praises 'professional performance'

28 September 2015

John Coleman was full of praise for his Accrington Stanley side after they beat Crawley Town 3-0 in Sky Bet League 2.

Josh Windass, Matt Crooks and Billy Kee were on target for the Lancashire outfit and it was a result that moved them up to fifth in the standings.

It also means Coleman's charges are unbeaten in seven outings, while Crawley, who were reduced to 10 men just before the break, have lost their last four.

“It was a real professional performance,” Coleman told the club's official website.

“They were down to 10 men after 44 minutes and our domination was because of that.

“But the build up to all three goals was fantastic. The build-up play to the penalty was breathtaking. You do not want to see players sent off but, by the letter of the law, he had to go.

“Then the other two goals were great moves. We could have scored one or two more but thankfully we weren’t made to rue the misses.

“We have said about Crooksy [Matt Crooks] before that he has the tools to be a top player and I said to Billy [Kee] once he scored one, they would come like buses and he has three goals in three games now.

“And it was great to keep a clean sheet. Both Joe [Wright] and Liam [Wakefield] deserve praise. They took to it like a duck to water. They competed and used the ball well.”
