Manager James Beattie has said he can take huge positives from the way that Accrington performed in our goalless draw against Oxford United, and he now has a renewed belief that Accrington will gain their first win of the league campaign sooner rather than later, as long as we put in that kind of effort and performance again on a regular basis.
Speaking to the press following the match, Beattie explained that he felt we had the better of the first half against Oxford who would've gone top of the table had they taken victory, and that he feels that speaks volumes for how the players are coming together, gelling, and starting to play for each other and find their form.
That form he believes will see us show what we are capable of in the very near future.
'We would have taken a point before the game as Oxford are a good side who will cause problems for a lot of teams in this league. But I was pleased with individual performances and collectively.'
Beattie added that the players came in at full time disappointed to have only taken a point, and again for him, that is a massively good sign for how the team have improved over recent weeks and also the levels they now expect from themselves - even when facing a team flying as high as Oxford are.
Accrington have now drawn the last three of our four games, which is certainly the sign of some consistency in both performance and results, so hopefully that trend will continue.
We really do just need to sneak that first win even if it's one nil with the goal going in 2 seconds before the referee blows it's whistle, and potentially goes in off the referee's backside.
We just need that kind of break.
