Assistant manager Jimmy Bell has warned he and John Coleman could leave Accrington if their new contracts are not sorted out in the coming weeks.

The managerial duo, who have been with Stanley for 11 years, continue to be linked with other clubs and Bell insists they are prepared to move if they do not get offered new terms soon.

"I think it could come back to bite them if we didn't sign it, because someone might take a chance on us and then it would be down to us what we wanted to do," he told the Lancashire Telegraph.

"John has been linked with Bradford and Shrewsbury in the last few months.

"I don't know how long it takes to draw up a contract, but it doesn't take six months. Myself and John are more than happy to stay here and I think we've done a fantastic job, so you'd like to feel you deserve a little bit better.

"You do worry a little bit that it has been dragging on for so long, but you perhaps don't worry as much as you might at some other clubs because we've been working without a contract for 11 years."
