Loan Watch: Stanley Crash Out

Accrington Stanley were knocked out of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy by holders Crewe Alexandra on Tuesday night.

Newcastle's on-loan midfielder Michael Richardson played the whole game for Stanley, but they were beaten by Chuks Aneke's 79th minute goal.

Former Magpies midfielder Bradden Inman started for Crewe as 21-year-old Richardson had the visitors' best goalscoring chances.

First he saw a close range effort cleared off the line by Gregor Robertson, then he headed over the bar before dragging a shot wide in the second half.

Last week, Richardson's initial one-month loan period was extended until the New Year.
