Accrington Stanley players wait on new contracts

Accrington Stanley manager John Coleman says he will not enter contract negotiations with any of his first team until the end of the season.

Midfielder Ian Craney, who rejoined Stanley this season, is the only player contracted to the club for next term.

Long-serving boss Coleman told BBC Radio Lancashire: "Everyone is too busy concentrating on the next game and trying to get promoted.

"Whatever happens will happen at the end of the season."

With five matches remaining, Stanley are level on points with the League Two play-off places and five points off an automatic promotion spot. They take on Oxford this weekend at the Crown Ground.

Coleman said: "You're better off leaving things the way they are and concentrating on the games and that is what we're going to do."
