Richardson takes helm again
Leam Richardson will begin his second spell in caretaker charge of Accrington at Bristol Rovers following Paul Cook's departure to Chesterfield.
Richardson stepped into the breach when John Coleman left the Crown Ground to move to Rochdale last season and Cook's unveiling as the new Spireites boss on Friday leaves him in the same position. The former Stanley defender took training on Thursday as Cook agreed personal terms with his new employers. Richardson has no new injury worries, with midfielder Charlie Barnett the only absentee as he steps up rehabilitation from an ankle problem. The Reds were beaten 5-1 by Rovers at the end of last season - a defeat fresh in the mind of striker Padraig Amond. He told Press Association Sport: "We kind of owe them one, but it's not a game for revenge or anything like that. We want to get ourselves back on track."
