John Doolan hailed Stanley's "work rate and desire" following their 2-2 draw against Notts County.

The visitors went in front when Jim O'Brien fired home in the fourth minute but the Reds hit back through Shaun Whalley's strike from close range.

The Magpies regained the lead when Sam Austin’s shot was kept out by Radek Vitek’s legs but it fell to Alassana Jatta to slot home.

The Reds equalised 11 minutes from time when they were awarded a penalty for a Kyle Cameron handball and Jack Nolan fired home his 14th goal of the campaign.

Doolan said: “We gave Notts County the early goal but responded well, we got back on the front foot and asked questions.

“I was really pleased with the response from the lads, the work rate and the desire to get back in the game.

“In the second half, I thought there was only one team in it, I felt we were in total control.

“That’s four points from six this week so it’s been a pretty good week. I am pleased with the response after everything which has gone on.

“I will carry on doing my best for Accrington and all I am focused on is Sutton next week.”
