And the Stanley squad could have made the long trip home from Home Park with all three points had Argyle's new left-back Anthony Charles not cleared James Beattie's header off the line.

"It was a good point seeing we were away from home but it was the least we deserved as we dominated the first half," Richardson said.

"We had to rejig and reshape because of injuries in the second half which did allow Plymouth back into the game a little bit, although we restricted them to playing long balls into our box.

"I still felt we could get something more form the game and we nearly did.

"I thought a point was the least we deserved. The team all played well, with the correct emphasis.

"We came down and got a result. We did not want to lose and the mind set was tremendous, both individually and collectively."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
