We worked hard - Richardson
Accrington's assistant manager Leam Richardson felt his side deserved a share of the spoils from their trip to Torquay.
Gulls targetman Rene Howe crashed in his 13th goal of the season in the 73rd minute to snatch three points after great work by on-loan Walsall forward Ryan Jarvis. Richardson said: "We came down here looking to get something from the game and are disappointed to be going home with nothing to show for it. We set up well, our shape was strong and we had a fair few chances. "We are a very attacking team and we set up to go and create chances. I think we will always cause teams problems. We have been playing some good stuff and we were the same in this game. "We worked tirelessly like we always do and in the end we have lost. We think we could have had a free-kick in the build up to the goal, so that was disappointing as well. "Our lads have all got a lot to play for - they showed that here and will be like it again on Monday when we've got Hereford at home. There are contracts to play for, a new manager, a new management team, so there is everything to play for. You don't want to give anybody an easy time whether they are fighting against relegation or going for promotion."
