Richardson to discuss future
Leam Richardson will soon discuss his future with Accrington chairman Peter Marsden after a winning start to his caretaker role.
It is the second time the 32-year-old has stepped into the hot seat, the last time in January and this time following Paul Cook's departure to Chesterfield on Thursday.
The crowd made their feelings known to the former Bolton and Blackburn defender by chanting Richardson's name during their 1-0 win over Bristol Rovers, but Cook is said to want his former assistant at the Proact Stadium.
"The full concentration since Thursday has been this game but I will talk to the chairman and managing director over the next few days," said Richardson, who has been at Stanley since 2005.
"It is always disappointing to lose a manager but I have learnt a lot in the nine months with him and it's a loss to us and Chesterfield's gain.
"But all the focus has been on this game and we bossed it, the lads stuck together and showed a great work ethic and I am sure Bristol Rovers can't argue with the result. It's a great learning curve for me and a great experience and we will see what happens next."
