Accrington Stanley boss backs his side to provide Ipswich Town with a stern test

Accrington Stanley manager John Coleman has revealed his side will head to Ipswich Town tomorrow 'full of confidence'.

After beating rivals Rochdale last time out, Stanley travel to Portman Road sitting sixth in the EFL League One standings.

Ipswich, meanwhile, are top of the pile with four wins from five fixtures, but Coleman is backing his men to provide a stern test.

He told the Accrington website: "We know it will be a tough game but we go there full of confidence. We have worked really hard in training in the last two or three weeks and the atmosphere is good at the club, the place is bouncing.

“Wins work wonders for your confidence, we have a high tempo in training and it’s a good place to be.

“It is early days and I do not think you can judge anyone after five games but everyone does look at the league table and Ipswich have had a good start. I think you can only tell after 10/12 games when things start to settle down.

“We know they have good players but we know we have good players, we can give anyone a game in this league and we will be going there to win.”

Accrington will be without the suspended Dion Charles for the clash.
