John Coleman felt his side’s 1-1 draw with Wycombe was Stanley’s best performance of the season.

Ade Akinfenwa gave new club Wanderers a 5th minute lead with a header from former Stanley defender Joe Jacobson’s free kick.

Sean McConville equalised on 48 minutes, tapping home Billy Kee’s cross, and the Reds then dominated possession but couldn’t turn it into a winning goal.

“I think we did enough to win,” said Coleman. “We shouldn’t have gone behind as it was a horrendous decision for the free kick but then we should have defended it.

“We got back in it with a great goal from Sean, you cannot deny his workrate and it was a fantastic goal. Then we had enough of the play to win it.

“It was our best performance of the season, we were lack lustre on Saturday at Barnet, but we looked hungry tonight and there were some big performances. We will get stronger as the season goes on.”

Coleman continued:  “We have shown we have character this season – we dug in against Doncaster, we battled hard with 10 men against Bradford and that’s why Barnet was so disappointing as we have the tools to beat them.

“But we looked more of a threat tonight. Billy Kee looked back to his usual self, he was a constant threat and held the ball up while John O’Sullivan is getting up to speed and will get better.”

Coleman said Scott Brown suffered a hamstring injury during the warm-up while there was a sickness bug in the camp with six suffering.
