Coleman hails lethal Lindfield

Published Add your comment

Boss John Coleman was delighted for Liverpool loanee Craig Lindfield to get the winning goal and boost Accrington's battle against the drop as they overcame Exeter 2-1.

The striker came to Stanley in January from the Anfield club and slotted home only his second goal to secure the win after John Miles had cancelled out Adam Stansfield`s opener for the visitors.

"He was outstanding and deserved his goal," said Coleman.

"You always want your strikers to score and he is a smashing kid.

"You could see how delighted all his team-mates were that he scored and hopefully he will go on and get some more now.

"For the first 20 minutes Exeter started all-guns blazing and I thought it was going to be a long afternoon but then, all credit to the lads for battling back and we played really well and scored two goals."
