ACCRINGTON Stanley boss John Coleman feels his side is brimming with confidence and will not be fazed by Ipswich Town's unbeaten start.

The Tractorboys top the League One table having won four of their opening fixtures, and drawing the other.

But last weekend's win over rivals Rochdale puts Stanley in sixth with nine points, and has brought a feelgood factor to the Wham Stadium.

“We know it will be a tough game but we go there full of confidence,” said Coleman.

“We have worked really hard in training in the last two or three weeks and the atmosphere is good at the club, the place is bouncing.

“Wins work wonders for your confidence, we have a high tempo in training and it’s a good place to be."

Ahead of tomorrow's game at Portman Road, the Reds boss added: “It is early days and I do not think you can judge anyone after five games but everyone does look at the league table and Ipswich have had a good start. I think you can only tell after 10-12 games when things start to settle down.

“We know they have good players but we know we have good players, we can give anyone a game in this league and we will be going there to win.”

Coleman has a selection headache in all areas of the pitch, but notably for the goalkeeper's jersey.

Toby Savin has started the season well but has stiff competition for the gloves from Nathan Baxter, who signed on a season long loan from Chelsea last week.

“Nathan’s attitude is unbelievable,” said Coleman. “He has been first class since he has come in and conducts himself really well.

“He will push Toby all the way and that’s what we want.

“It does give me a headache but it’s one you want to have. We have a strong squad and good competition for places."

And Coleman is hoping for a better outcome than their last trip to Portman Road, where they lost 4-1 last season, albeit winning the return fixture at the Wham Stadium.

“We played poorly at their place and they played well. I am hoping that is fresh in the minds of our players," said the Reds' boss, speaking to the club's official website.

“If you rewind to the game at our place, we were more than value for the 2-0 win.

“We were excellent on the day, it was live on Sky and we bossed it from start to finish so we have to remember that as well.”

Striker Dion Charles is unavailable as he completes his three-match ban, while Sean McConville (Achilles) and Mo Sangare (ankle) are close to a return to action.
