Richardson eyes Accrington Stanley survival guarantee

LEAM Richardson hopes Accrington Stanley’s survival mission is accomplished today.

The Reds boss believes the bottom two will be decided on the final day of the season next Saturday.

But in an ideal world for Richardson, his Stanley side won’t be involved and the result in their last game at home to Oxford will have no bearing on the relegation shake-up.

“I think if we went to Bristol Rovers and won we can enjoy ourselves,” he said ahead of this afternoon’s game the the Memorial Ground.

“I think it will definitely go down to the last game of the season, hopefully we’re not one of them and we can enjoy the game and give a good account of ourselves and watch other events unfold without us being involved whatsoever. That would be the perfect scenario for me.”

After beating Morecambe in their penultimate home game, results elsewhere at the weekend and during the week mean Accrington still have work to do to preserve their Football League status.

Richardson insists they have resisted the fear factor.

“Nobody gets anxious or worried because through those traits you make bad decisions. It’s all about being positive, enjoying yourself and enjoying your football and you’ll make more good and positive decisions,” he said.

“It’s a case of going out and enjoying playing, being involved saying against Bristol Rovers because they’re a good team and it’s a good set-up.

“Hopefully through that you’ll play we’ll and get the results you need.

“If we continue to believe like we have done, we’ve put some really good shifts in as a group and individually and scored some great goals late on. If we can continue to do that and get better and do what we have been doing we’ll be fine.”

Why are there never match reports or even a result shown until days after the event?
Stanleys league survival has been guaranteed today with another great and hard fought away win and no match report or even the final score reported on the telegraph website. Total waste of time as a local paper, Not everybody wants to know everything about Blackburn Rovers, or Burnley and get nothing reported about the Stanley

Quite right. Where are the Stanley match reports? The Telegraph is letting the club's fans down badly. At least the Stanley have put up a decent fight to avoid relegation which is more than can be said for another nearby club.

Not exactly Stanley-centric articles when they do come! Always reads a little like: 'Stanley from the perspective of a Blackburn/Burnley fan who can't really be bothered writing about Stanley but it pays the bills' to me... Maybe it's time to get a dedicated Stanley writer - Craig Linfield could do it!!

Molyneux 2′
FT 90 +5
HT 0-1

Lee Molyneux's second-minute goal was enough for a precious victory at Bristol Rovers that secured Football League survival for Accrington.
Molyneux struck a superb 30-yard free kick that Rovers keeper Steve Mildenhall could only palm the shot into the roof of the net.
Young midfielder Ollie Clarke, making his first start, went close with a dipping volley for the home side.
Rommy Boco could have doubled Accrington's lead, but headed wide.
First match report!!!!!
