Relegation-threatened Stanley have won one in 14 League Two games but young manager Richardson knows this was a step in the right direction.

"It was a fantastic performance," said Richardson, despite Stanley still being in the bottom two. "I would go as far as saying it was our best performance of the season.

"We are just disappointed we didn't win and we are not hiding behind the fact that we need to win games but if we turn in another 13 games like that we will win more than we lose.

"We had enough chances to win five games but I am a positive person, I believe in what I do and I am sure we will get out of it.

"From one to 11 we were superior to them and I am sure Cheltenham are getting on the bus wondering how they got a point from this game. But we can't affect this game now and we look forward to Rochdale on Tuesday and building on this."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
