Town were second best for much of the afternoon but claimed a point thanks to Marlon Pack's double, with James Beattie also grabbing a brace for the hosts.

"It's always difficult coming to a place like this and Accrington showed that they are fighting for their survival and you could tell that with the effort they put in, they want to stay in this division," Howarth said.

"I am disappointed we haven't shown enough quality to win the game and we didn't play our best stuff until we went 2-1 behind. Then I felt we could have nicked it at the end but, with our overall performance, we didn't really deserve that.

"Both their goals were set-pieces which was disappointing for us but our second was a set-piece and it was a good header from Marlon. It would have been nice to get a third but it wasn't to be."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
