Beattie content with stalemate

Accrington boss James Beattie felt his side were unfortunate to come away with just a point after their 0-0 draw with Wycombe.

Accrington midfielder Piero Mingoia went closest to settling the contest when his late effort was ruled out for offside.

Beattie was ultimately satisfied with a point which moved 18th-placed Stanley closer to League Two survival.

"Towards the end there was only really one team that was going to score and I felt it was us. They had a couple of opportunities which I felt we gifted to them," he said.

"I'd like to see the replay (of the disallowed goal). It's a well-earned point, it's not a classic in anybody's book but we stuck in and we did the nasty things well and were hard to beat and we stuck in there and got a point.

"Our record away from home is very good and we've learnt about how to deal with certain situations and the lads are learning how to deal with them, and it's great for me to see and it shows me that they are progressing.

"Marcus (Bettinelli) made a great save at a very important time in the game. I've not got enough plaudits for that young man, he's a tremendous 'keeper."
