Accrington Stanley boss John Coleman said viewers wouldn’t have know which side was top of the table in Ipswich Town’s 2-0 win over his charges yesterday.
Stanley entered the game in sixth spot, and frustrated Town in a tight, goalless first half, before the Blues pulled away with second stanza goals from Gwion Edwards and Freddie Sears.
And Coleman said: “They took their chances and we didn’t.
“The first goal was always going to be the turning point, it’s a great finish.
“It’s an individual error for the second goal but from a neutral point of view you wouldn’t have known who was top and who was sixth, no disrespect to Ipswich who are a very good side.
“We gave them enough to warrant a few scares. We have to stick together. This team is only going to get better, they are young, keen and work hard.
“The more they find their feet in this league the better they will get.
“We’re not little Accrington any more. People know they have been in the game when they play against us.”
