re­mark­able re­vival un­der John Ward. But the man­ager was in no mood to party af­ter the game.

A stony-faced Ward said: “The sup­port­ers were bet­ter than the team to­day. I have told my play­ers that if they per­form like that next sea­son they will not get the same sort of re­cep­tion.

“They have got away with it to­day be­cause of what they have done pre­vi­ously since I re­turned to the club. “But they let them­selves and the fans down. It’s not of­ten I have been given cause to be crit­i­cal, but I’m dis­ap­pointed be­cause it could have been a really good day for us to­day.

“We have to be bet­ter than that next sea­son and in our fi­nal game at Torquay next Satur­day.”

Molyneux’s goal was one of few mo­ments of ex­cite­ment in a scrappy match, which saw Ac­cring­ton de­fend strongly through­out.

It took Rovers 23 min­utes to reg­is­ter a shot and then Tom Parkes’ ef­fort was straight at goal­keeper Paul Rachubka.

Young mid­fielder Ol­lie Clarke, mak­ing his first start for the home side, put in their best first half ef­fort just be­fore the break when his dip­ping vol­ley just cleared the cross­bar.
