Accrington Stanley slipped to defeat at Rotherham United yesterday to leave them two points above the League One relegation places.
Stanley have not won in the league since they saw off league leaders Ipswich Town at the Crown Ground on October 20, and with only three league wins and seventeen league goals so far this season, it could be a long winter as a relegation battle appears to be looming.
A dismal first-half performance saw them go in at half time 1-0 down to a Carlton Morris strike, and despite improving after the break, they were unable to find the target, with talisman Sean McConville coming closest.
A red card for Chiedoze Ogbene meant the Millers had to see out the remaining ten minutes with ten men to clinch a victory, which puts them firmly in the playoff picture but leaves Stanley looking nervously over their shoulder.
Many fans of the Lancashire club continue to hold a sense of perspective, knowing with the budget and resources at their disposal, retaining their League One status would be a success.
However, some are getting worried at their team’s plight and were quick to voice their concerns when they took to social media to react to the result. Plenty of fans are hoping manager John Coleman can pull some rabbits out of the hat in January and make some decent signings.
Here is a selection of their responses on Twitter.
Is it January yet? 🙃 #asfc

To be honest the next two games are massive and yes unfortunately have become crucial relegation battles , but I would take 4th of bottom any day. It is fantastic that we are in league 1 competing.
