Beattie Loving Stanley Run

Manager James Beattie couldn't be more happy at the moment having seen Accrington Stanley continue their change in fortunes with a good two nil win over Scunthorpe yesterday.

Two first half goals from George Bowerman and Kayode Odejayi helped Accrington to their third win of the season and extend our unbeaten run in the league.

Speaking to the press following the game Beattie was also delighted to finally get a win under his belt against Scunthorpe at Glanford Park as it was something he failed to do as a player himself.

'I never won here as a player but what my team have given me is something very special and I am very thankful to them for that. I have loved every minute of being manager of these players and I am very proud of them.'

Beattie says that this result probably more than any other so far really does show how far Accrington have come this season and it's down to the players themselves because they are working hard, listening and putting the game plans into practice on the pitch and they are now getting what they deserve from games.

Overall he was pleased with the first half performance, but he knew we'd have to step it up a touch in the second half because Scunthorpe would obviously come at us looking to get back on level terms, and he was delighted with what the players said to each other at half time, and then we put that into practice on the pitch and improved our showing, and importantly got the clean sheet.

Adding that a few weeks ago he doesn't feel we would've held out like we did in the second half, especially against a team like Scunthorpe, so whilst nobody will get carried away the players can afford to be happy and pleased with things at the moment.
