Accrington Stanley boss John Coleman said viewers wouldn’t have know which side was top of the table in Ipswich Town’s 2-0 win over his charges yesterday.
Stanley entered the game in sixth spot, and frustrated Town in a tight, goalless first half, before the Blues pulled away with second stanza goals from Gwion Edwards and Freddie Sears.
And Coleman said: “They took their chances and we didn’t.
“The first goal was always going to be the turning point, it’s a great finish.
“It’s an individual error for the second goal but from a neutral point of view you wouldn’t have known who was top and who was sixth, no disrespect to Ipswich who are a very good side.
