Stanley winger eyes starting spot

08 September 2009 10:39
The 19-year-old, who penned a new two-year deal with an option of a third in the club's favour over the summer, has started in Stanley's previous two games against Oldham and Bury. Accrington's well publicised financial problems, due to the club owing HM Revenue and Customs £308,000 in just under eight weeks, has recently taken the focus away from the playing side. But Turner admits he is only interested on what happens on the pitch from now on and said: "The players have been notified about the problems but we still have to get on with things and do our stuff on the pitch. I have been coming into games from off the bench and it's hard to get into a game when you are only given 10 minutes here and there. "I'm happy with the last two games, both the gaffer (John Coleman) and Jimmy (Bell) know what I can do so I wasn't worried about getting my chance again. They both have been pushing me and helping me gain my fitness so that I am ready to slip back into the side whenever I am called upon. They have been good with me, keeping me on my toes in training and building my confidence." He added: "I just hope I hold my place down and secure myself out on the right. I really do feel that I have worked hard enough to retain my place."
