Positive Point For Beattie

Positive Point For Beattie

Manager James Beattie has said it was a good point against Wycombe Wanderers yesterday and there is even a bit of disappointment that we didn't take all three.

Speaking to the Official Site following the goalless draw, Beattie admitted that it was disappointing to not see us take our late chances and secure another win, but he couldn't have been prouder of the team for continuing to show improvements as the games pass.

'Towards the end I think there was only one team that was going to score and that was us. I'm delighted with the discipline shown by the players and it's a well earned point.'

Beattie says that in games like this you have to be tight at the back and not let them in because it helps quieten the crowd and swing things in your favour, and we certainly did that on the day and he's now looking forward to a testing encounter against Scunthorpe in midweek when we host them at the Store First Stadium.

Accrington are of course now unbeaten in our last four matches and the gaffer says we'll be doing our best to extend that run even further when we turn out in the next match, and if we can add the victory as a means of extending that run, even better.

He adds that he feels this season we now have one of the best Stanley squads fans will have seen, so moving forward there should be some bright days for us, as if we had started the season in brighter fashion we would be a lot higher up the table given the form we have developed since that opening period, so it bodes well for next season.
