Coleman Praises Side

Coleman Praises Side
Accrington manager John Coleman was more than happy after watching his Accrington side knock Oldham out of the FA Cup.

Ray Putterill struck twice, once in each half and James Ryan hit the other as Stanley simply looked more up for the game.

Coleman said: 'It was a fantastic game, but not for the faint-hearted.

'They had a 20-minute spell where they put us under immense pressure, but apart from that I thought we were magnificent.

'We've been on a sticky patch and conceded 24 goals in eight games, but we defended well - despite conceding two goals - and showed a lot of character and that's what I have asked from the players.

'I wanted the players dying on their feet and they gave their all and that's all you can ask win, lose or draw.

'Ray Putterill scored two fantastic goals and, when he's in that kind of mood, he's difficult to play against.'
