Accrington Stanley Academy Manager John Townson will take his youth team to Wigan tomorrow (Friday) in a Youth Alliance clash.

The game will be played at Robin Park Sports Arena, kicking off at 2pm.

It’s Townson’s second game in charge since he became Academy Manager at the Store First Stadium,

“This will be a tough game as Wigan have won their last two games and their last one was a 5-0 victory,” said the Academy Manager.

“But, although we lost 3-1 to Blackpool last week, I saw a lot of potential there. We were excellent in parts and now what we need is to get that consistency.

“Last week, before Blackpool, we had only had a few days to train together but now we have had a full week and I am pleased with what I have seen.”
