Focus on the League | Accrington Stanley #8 | Football Manager Stories

Defeats against Premier League Hull City and League One Wigan Athletic and Birmingham City mean that Accrington Stanley are able to shift their focus towards League Two. Fans of The Reds seem to be unsure of what to expect for their teams first year back in the Football League. Some are happy to survive in the league whereas others are more ambitious. Joseph Robson falls into the ambitious category. With Accrington currently sitting in the playoff places, Robson will be keen to ensure his side can stay there.

A look at the recent form of Accrington shows the inconsistency that has plagued the club over the last few years. Despite success in the previous season, Robson was quoted to be disappointed with the lack in consistency over the year. The club went seven games without winning before Christmas and often were unable to maintain an unbeaten streak. This year is beginning to show the same problems. Accrington have won just three of their last nine in the league, yet still sit in 6th place.


Kenji Gorre was signed by Accrington Stanley midway through November. It is thought that the right midfielder will fight with Piero Mingoia for a starting spot, however the ability to play both in the centre and on the wings is a main factor in his arrival on a free.

Joseph Robson will be happy with his teams start to life in League Two. Can his side battle for a playoff place over the next few months or will Accrington fall of the pace?
