‘If we do get suc­cess, it’ll be a re­flec­tion on all of us’

Accrington Observer - - MOTORS -

no-one’s try­ing to just get through a game. They’re work­ing them­selves into the ground.

“Every game we play is only go­ing to get big­ger and big­ger. You see how much it means to the play­ers and the fans and the staff. It’s a com­mu­nal ef­fort. If we do get the suc­cess, it’ll be a re­flec­tion on all of us.”

A feisty en­counter at the One Call Sta­dium was swung in Stan­ley’s favour early on when Mans­field de­fender Mal Ben­ning was sent off for a high chal­lenge on Billy Kee in the 13th minute.

Prior to the dis­missal both sides gave good ac­counts of them­selves. Play-off chas­ing Mans­field started brightly, with Lee An­gol draw­ing a fine save from Aaron Chap­man in the open­ing ex­changes.

Ac­cring­ton grew into the game, how­ever, with their first real open­ing fall­ing to Kay­den Jack­son, who scam­pered onto a ball over the top from Scott Brown, but could only find the side net­ting.

Chap­man was on hand again for Stan­ley
