Coleman vows to fight on

16 Jan 2008 - 14:16:40

Accrington Stanley boss John Coleman has vowed to fight on despite coming under increasing pressure after their 8-2 humiliation at Peterborough United on Tuesday.

The Lancashire club have slipped to 15th in the League Two table on the back of a four-match winless sequence, but Coleman is refusing to contemplate ending his eight-year reign at the Fraser Eagle Stadium.

"Conceding eight goals has never happened before to me as a manager and we'll find out on Saturday (against Brentford) what character we're made of," he told the Lancashire Telegraph.

"I'm not the type of person who crawls into a corner. I'll stick my chest out and I'll deal with whatever comes my way.

"I've had some good nights and I've had some bad nights. I've had times when I've felt worse than this.

"There's not a lot you can say about that. We didn't defend very well and Peterborough are the type of side that, when they get their tails up, they've got good forwards who are a handful for anyone."
