Naylor can boost my Stanley, says boss
JAMES Beattie believes new boy Lee Naylor can provide the service for Accrington Stanley to get back among the goals in the weeks to come.
Former Wolves and Celtic left back Naylor has joined Stanley on a short-term deal and made his debut in Saturday’s home game against Rochdale.
The 33-year-old was unable to prevent a 2-1 defeat on that occasion but Beattie was pleased with the set piece delivery on show .
And the manager thinks that could prove important as the Reds look to improve a record of only two goals in their last eight games.
“Nayls’ pedigree speaks for itself,” Beattie said.
“I’m happy with the way he slotted into the team and his delivery is first class.
“We just need someone to get on the end of it.”
Beattie also welcomed former Bolton defender Nicky Hunt back from a knee injury at the weekend and says positivity is vital as Stanley bid to end a run of eight straight defeats, which have left them bottom of League Two.
“I’ve got to remain positive,” he said.
“You’ll never see giving up or saying anything derogatory about my players because everything’s got to be positive. We’re in this together.
“We are disappointed but we’ve got to go again and start winning points.
“Maybe the lads are trying too hard and sometimes you make the wrong decisions.
“A few of the lads maybe need to relax a bit more and start making the right decisions.”
