FULL TIME: Accrington Stanley 1 Blackburn Rovers 0
4:52pm Saturday 21st July 2012 in Football
Former Cheltenham wide man Smikle met a cross from fellow trialist Adam Rundle and diverted a header goalwards in the 66th minute, although few expected Robinson to allow the ball to slip through his fingers and squirm over the line.
Seconds earlier Stanley had hit the post through another trialist, James Gray, who fired in a low shot from 20 yards.
Rovers were second best for long spells as Stanley kept possession neatly, although Blackburn trialist Edinho hit the post in the final seconds of the match.
