Beattie Chuffed With First Win

Beattie Chuffed With First Win

Manager James Beattie has said he's thoroughly delighted to see Accrington Stanley pick up their first win of the campaign in the game against Bristol Rovers last night.

Speaking to the BBC following the two one victory, Beattie said he believes the win will have silenced some of their doubters following their start to the campaign which had previously only returned four points from twelve games, and moreso he feels his faith in the players has been vindicated - but of course we now need to build on this.

'I've never had any doubts, other people have had their doubts and have been quick to share them with me. Fortunately, people that know football know what's going on here. It's not a quick fix, it's for the long term.'

The 35 year old has often said he thought the first victory of the league campaign would only be around the corner after being generally pleased with the improvement he's seen in the players both on the training pitch and in games themselves, and that gap that was being built on us by teams above, has been nicely cut with that victory.

The confidence boost from the win should be quite dramatic in the players, but building on the victory is now what's important even if we only follow it with a draw - stay unbeaten and grow in confidence and we'll be in a good position.

Beattie has already said the players aren't carrying themselves like a team at the bottom of the league, and this win will certainly help them keep their heads higher.

As for the game itself in other interviews, Beattie admitted that he felt we were certainly the better team on the day and more than deserved the win, as he felt we played some great stuff during the 90 minutes.

League table looks a bit healthier now, hopefully moreso following this weekend.
