Vital Quotes:

Mark Robins - John Coleman has done a good job at Accrington and his teams always work hard. They are a difficult side to break down.

John Coleman - We`ve been trying to build on an ethos this year, our buzzword has been expectation and trying to raise the players` expectations. Some of the media thinks we will be also rans this year and we are determined to prove them wrong.
