Saturday’s win against top-three side Oxford has convinced Scott Brown that Stanley can achieve automatic promotion.
The January signing scored an 88th minute winner at The Kassam on Saturday as the Reds came from behind to beat their promotion rivals.
“We believe we can go up automatically,” Brown told the club’s official website. “I haven’t been here a long time but you can see the standard of the lads.
“There are top, top players here and I just hope I can play my part between now and the end of the season.
“There is a great togetherness here. The gaffer trusts all the players.
“Saturday was a great day for Accrington. It’s three points and we are pushing Oxford all the way now.”
The former Grimsby midfielder was delighted to score on his full Stanley debut.
“As soon as I hit it I knew it was going in,” he said.“Everything just fell perfect.
“It’s a great feeling.”
