After Rovers win against Accrington, the Stanley manager had this to say about the sending off:

‘It looked a lot worse than it was, and being in front of the stand, the reaction (of the crowd) hasn’t helped,’ he said.

‘Shaun Whalley’s not a dirty player by any means.

‘The ball was bouncing up and was there to be challenged for.

‘Unfortunately he’s caught the lad in the stomach but it wasn’t deliberate and I think it was a bit harsh to send him off.’
