Accrington Stanley’s frustrating start to the new season continued with a 2-0 defeat at Fleetwood.

Here we take a look at how the players performed at Highbury with John Coleman’s side still looking for their first win of the campaign.

Dimi Evtimov 6

A couple of decent saves but a couple of nervy moments too

Zaine Francis-Angol 6

Was kept busy by Wes Burns, penalised for the spot kick

Mark Hughes 6

Strikers Paddy Madden and then Ched Evans piled pressure on Stanley defence

Ross Sykes 6

Used his height at both ends but was a frustrating game for him and Stanley

Callum Johnson 6

Winger Ash Hunter was dangerous on breakaways and the full-back couldn’t make an impact going forward

Sean McConville 4

Frustrating game for winger where things didn’t come off and resulted in red card

Seamus Conneely 6

Worked hard in the middle of the park without reward

STAR MAN: Sam Finley 7

Midfielder made a couple of dangerous runs into the Fleetwood box but couldn’t capitalise

Jordan Clark 5

Winger couldn’t make a big impact in the game, couldn’t make his usual runs and crosses

Dion Charles 5

First start for the Reds, missed a chance to put Stanley ahead, didn’t see a lot of the ball

Colby Bishop 6

Got little change out of the Fleetwood defence – couldn’t convert a header in his best chance
