The Opposition View - Accrington
In the wake of yesterday's deadly dull and disappointing 1-0 defeat to Accrington, here are some views on the game from Stanley manager Leam Richardson and a few of their fans.
"I don't think either team played well to be honest," said Richardson in his post match interview.
"It was a scrappy game, the pitch dictated that."
"At this time of the season it's not about performances it's about results, and to get the result the way we did was fantastic and I'm made up."
"You've got to put in that hard work and keep your shape because it pays off if you get half a chance."
"If we can stay in the game we've got goals in us, and Lee has popped up to give us a massive three points."
The Stanley fans were chuffed to little mint balls.
The following extracts are taken from Accringtonweb.
'What a fantastic win. I actually feel confident we'll stay up for the first time in ages.'
'There's nowt like leavin it to the last bloody minute - well done lads - brilliant win.'

'Molyneux may not be here next season... but if he isn't and we stay up he has surely kept us up by himself and earned himself a place within the pantheon of Stanley icons. How appropriate that our resurrection should take place around the Easter period.'
'It wasn't a classic game, but survival will come from winning games like this. Wycombe only had 2 shots on target. That speaks well for our defence who were under pressure a lot of the game and that is what we should take from this. A few months ago we would have been 3-0 down before Molyneux's goal, but being able to go away, defend strongly on a bouncy pitch, restrict the opposition to just 2 shots on target. All those are real positives. Grabbing a last minute goal was the icing on the cake. and like all icings on cake, very welcome. It was a perfect away trip in many ways: go away, defend from the front, work hard, keep the clean sheet and snatch a late winner.'
'Biggest respect of the game goes to Amine Linganzi, who's brother died last night yet he played and was immense.'
'Full respect to Wycombe and their fans. They made us welcome, had a good craic with them in their sports bar before the game, £10 admission was a real boost and it must have been a sickener to lose like that. hahahahhahaha!'
'Wycombe is one of my fondest grounds. Can you remember going there when Stanley were the biggest price on the football coupon on the opening day and we won 1-0? It was a red hot day and the Wycombe stewards were top class.'
