ANDY Todd spoke to Vital Stanley following Accrington Stanley`s 3-2 home win over Paul Ince`s Macclesfield Town.
The explosive winger thought that the game alone was the story of Stanley`s season, and it is hard to disagree with him.

“It was a massive game and I`m sure every one was nervous, I think the game was the story of our season though,” Said Todd speaking exclusively to Vital Stanley.

“The way we took the lead and started like a house on fire, obviously got an early goal that settled our nerves, we needed that second goal but it didn`t come and we got punished for it.

“We were 1-1 then we got that second kick in the teeth and we were fortunate to get that goal and go in to half time at 2-2 and that gave us something to go in and talk about.”

I went on to ask him if he put the victory down to team confidence and home form over the last 4 or 5 games.

“Yeah it was confidence, because although we had lost our last 5 away games, we had won our last 4 games at home. 12 points from our last 12 at home, we came back here with a bit of form.

“We knew it was going to be a different type of game though today. At the end of the day it was down to who wanted it more.”

This is Todd`s first ever season in Football League Football, after joining Stanley from Nationwide Conference outfit Burton Albion at the beginning of the season, and he is clearly enjoying playing at this level.

“Its been really fantastic, because I have always wanted to play in the football league, and I would like to thank Accrington for giving me the opportunity.”

The midfielder who has been Stanley`s hero on so many occasions this season, sees his contract expire in the summer, so it was the perfect opportunity to ask him about the situation.

“I`m not too sure, that`s something I have to talk about with the gaffer and chairman. Obviously we still have one more game to go, so I want to finish the season in style at Milton Keynes next weekend.”

Vital Stanley would like to thank Andy Todd for the time he spent speaking to us.
