Run comes to an end at home

Accrington Observer - - SPORT -

all in all it was a fairly quiet first half.

That changed just be­fore the in­ter­val when Grimsby took the lead on 42 min­utes.

It was a good solo goal from Jones, rac­ing for­ward and chip­ping the ball over Aaron Chap­man, be­fore then run­ning past him and tap­ping the ball over the line from close range.

Grimsby thought they would be ahead at the break, but Ac­cring­ton had other ideas as they lev­elled just two min­utes later on the stroke of half-time.

Jor­dan Clark’s pass found Jack­son, who fires home to score his fifth goal of the cam­paign.

Stan­ley were forced into a change at half-time, with Leeds loa­nee Mal­lik Wilks com­ing on in place of the in­jured Billy Kee.

He nearly had an im­me­di­ate im­pact, forc­ing a good save out of James McKe­own after a pow­er­ful shot.

Grimsby cap­i­talised on the missed chance though as they went down the other end and scored them­selves when Wool­ford net­ted from a tight an­gle.

Stan­ley did all they could to try and find an equaliser dur­ing the clos­ing stages but it wasn’t to be, with Grimsby hold­ing on to earn the 2-1 win.
