YORK CITY ........1
ANDREW O’MARA – ACCRINGTON STANLEY
WE ABSOLUTELY, completely, undoubtedly deserved nothing from the game against York, yet took away an equal share of the points. However at this stage of the season, with the position that we are in, we’ll take anything we can lay our grubby mits on. York played the game almost perfectly. They began with a high tempo and attacked for the entire game, holding us to the slimmest of chances. The stats will show how much York dominated, yet with typical Accrington cheek we nicked a point at the death.
This season has been our toughest test since earning promotion to the Football League in 2006. Our squad was illequipped to compete at the beginning of the season and it has now become clear that Paul Cook’s abandonment of Stanley was a blessing in disguise.
Leam Richardson has added the experience and instilled the mentality necessary to survive. And we will.
