BBC Sport - James Beattie: Accrington Stanley manager 'loves being boss'
I love being Stanley boss - Beattie
- From the section Football
James Beattie tells BBC Late Kick Off North West that he is enjoying his first season as a manager with Accrington Stanley.
Accrington failed to win any of their first 12 games in League Two but, under the 36-year-old, the Lancashire side have recovered to climb six points above the relegation zone.
Beattie, capped five times by England during his playing career, says avoiding relegation would constitute a successful season but believes his team can finish higher than their current position of 22nd.
