Stanley midfielder Scott Brown believes that the Reds have the firepower to get back to winning ways at home to Swindon tomorrow afternoon.
It’s been a tough couple of weeks for Brown and his teammates with defeat at Exeter in the league being followed by a Checkatrade Trophy exit at Lincoln.
Brown believes that Stanley have faced a lot of teams who counter their attacking football with a more physical and direct style of play.
But the 32-year-old is backing prolific strike duo Kayden Jackson and Billy Kee to find their scoring boots once again, aided by the in-form Sean McConville and fit again Jordan Clark, to fire them towards promotion.
“There are a lot of similar teams in this league,” he said. “We are one of the better sides, we play our football the right way and we will always stick to that.
“We have a technical game plan we like to pass the ball, create openings and the more direct teams will come up against us and try to suck us into a physical battle.
“But we have the quality and the firepower up front to nullify that, even out wide with Sean [McConville] and Clicker [Jordan Clark] who, they can make something out of nothing and we need that to find the breakthrough in them sort of matches. We need to find them levels again that we have already hit this season.”
Since regaining his first team spot back in October, Brown has played a vital role for Stanley in the centre of midfield.
Now, the former Everton Academy graduate is as hungry as ever to retain his place ahead of a busy Christmas schedule – with Reds in action seven times over the next month.
“No place is given in this team,” said Brown. “If you’re not performing well then you can’t expect to be playing.
“It’s all about just working as hard as you can and there won’t be anyone out on that pitch who will work as hard as me.
“We go into every game looking to win, the gaffer and Jimmy Bell install that into all of us. We have got just the league to focus on now and every game will be like a cup final to us. We have a difficult period in December, but tomorrow’s game can’t come round quickly enough.”
