ACCRINGTON Stanley boss John Coleman is confident his side are on track for promotion from League Two - but still believes there is room for improvement.

The Reds moved into third spot with a 2-1 away win at Port Vale and have collected 20 points from their opening 10 games.

But Coleman believes Stanley can get even better as they prepare for another away day at struggling Forest Green Rovers on Saturday.

He said: "It is 10 games in and we have got two points a game and I hope that can continue because if it does we will get promoted.

"If we are going to get where we want to then we have got to improve. We have to improve technically in the final third, we have to improve our concentration to defending for 90 minutes and not just 89 - as a team, not just the defenders.

"If we see an opening we have to get at teams a bit more and maybe not be ponderous in our build up play."

Billy Kee struck twice for Stanley on Tuesday night as they came from a goal down at Vale Park to extend their unbeaten away record to four games.

And Coleman was pleased with the performance of his striker who now has eight for the season in all competitions.

"I thought he was superb for getting two goals and his second half display was fantastic," the Accrington boss said of the 26-year-old.

"He led the line brilliantly and he took a real battering and kept going. He stuck to his task really really well and I am delighted that he has got his two goals."

Coleman admitted that the victory in the Potteries was 'not pretty' but took the positives from Stanley winning when not at their best.

He said: "I am delighted with the win. Anytime you get an away win in this league is difficult.

"It was a really surreal game, their crowd were very flat at the start which transmitted to the players and in the first 10 minutes we could just do what we wanted and what we wanted was to just keep the ball. It had the feeling of a testimonial or a pre-season friendly.

"We had to lift our game and we had control of the ball without really hurting them.

"Then they got on the front foot and they had a couple of chances and their goal was coming. It was a poor goal to concede from our point of view.

"You think it is going to be one of those nights but then Billy pops up with a great goal and it gave us the wake-up that we needed.

"In the second half we were brighter and got them a bit more and got the second goal and then possibly we decided to see it out which wasn't a tactical decision.

"I would have liked to have caused more problems going forward as there was a lot of space and they committed a lot of men forward.

"We defended really, really well in the second half and that is all credit to our defence. We saw it out really well.

"It wasn't pretty but the end justifies the means."
