John Coleman is hoping that April proves as successful as March for Stanley has his team begin a new month at high flying Plymouth.

The Reds haven’t lost since 11th February, going eleven matches without defeat.

That run has left the 13th in League Two, 19 points clear of the bottom two and within seven points of the top seven.

“This month has been very, very good,” said Coleman. “We’ve scored goals and it’s like a snowball effect. You get bigger and stronger because of the things you’ve done in the past that give you confidence for the future.

“I think it’s probably easier to maintain good form than get out of bad form to be honest. When you’re playing well you’re full of confidence and you tend not to think about it too much whereas when you’re going through a bad spell it probably occupies all your waking hours.

“Probably the fear of failure enhances the chances of failure but I don’t think the same applies the other way.

“We have players in good form. By his own admission Shay McCartan was misfiring for much of the season but I think he’s understanding his role in the team more now. He’s got himself a little fitter which helps and there’s never been a doubt about his ability.

“He’s added goals to that ability now and has that ability that if he’s not scoring through open play he knows he always has a chance from a set play. Considering he’s not the penalty taker to have the run of goals he’s had is exceptional.”

The Reds head to Home Park to face an Argyle side second in the table and well on course for automatic promotion.

They’ve won three of their last four but have lost at home to Blackpool, Notts County and Leyton Orient in 2017.

Coleman doesn’t expect any of those results to have a bearing on tomorrow’s game.

“We can’t read anything into other teams winning there,” he reasoned. “Every game gets played on its own merits. We historically have played well there in the past without getting a result so I hope the performance levels are the same but the outcome is different.

“It’ll be a big game with a big atmosphere and 9 or 10 000 there so that will be good. Our players have never been phased by anything like that and I don’t expect that to change.”
