Leam: We had more quality
10:57am Monday 1st October 2012 in Sport
ACCRINGTON Stanley assistant boss Leam Richardson heaped praised on the players after the Reds maintained their fine start to the season with a 2-1 victory at AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.
Stanley secured their third away win of the campaign to make it 17 points from their first nine games and lift them to an impressive fourth position in League Two.
Padraig Amond put Paul Cook’s side ahead and Peter Murphy added a second before a late consolation from Wimbledon, who were playing their first home game since Terry Brown was sacked as boss.
“I’m absolutely made up,” Richardson said.
“We worked hard, we came and prepared really well and we got three points again away from home.
“Wimbledon is not an easy place to go by any stretch.
“They were always going to offer a hunger to win with everything that had gone on.
“We just had to match Wimbledon in everything they did and we felt we had more quality to go and win the game, which we did.
“Padraig Amond is very clever in the box, he’s a goalscorer, and it was a cracking goal by Peter.
“It’s a great habit to have, winning away from home.”
