Assistant manager Leam Richardson paid tribute to Accrington's growing confidence after their 2-1 win at AFC Wimbledon.

The visitors raced into a comfortable lead thanks to goals from Padraig Amond and Peter Murphy in each half.

And although Sammy Moore struck in injury time it was not enough for the Dons to get anything from the game, with fourth-placed Stanley celebrating back-to-back wins.

Richardson said: "In our league we just have to stay in the game and have good habits, believe in what the manager and myself are saying. And when you do that you grow in confidence with wins. And here was no surprise, we expected to come here and win.

"It's not an easy place to come. They always have a good tempo in the game and obviously have a hunger to win with everything that's gone on and it was up to us to match them, especially for the first hour and hopefully our quality would come through in the end - which it did.

"Padraig Amond is a goalscorer. He's very clever in the box and he works hard and we did feel if we did go two or three up then the game would stretch and that's where we could have a foothold, which we didn't do as well as we would have liked."
