BEAST’S BRACE ENDS POOR RUN

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORTS -

ADE­BAYO AKINFENWA’s dou­ble took him to 16 as Wy­combe Wan­der­ers stopped the rot with a 2-2 draw at Ac­cring­ton Stan­ley on Tues­day.

The Chair­boys had seen their bril­liant form be­tween Novem­ber and Jan­uary van­ish with five straight league de­feats, the lat­est set­back Satur­day’s 2-1 home de­feat to Craw­ley, af­ter Akinfenwa had given them an early lead.

But they bounced back with a point at Ac­cring­ton, where Akinfenwa scored twice in two sec­ond-half min­utes. He can­celled out the host’s first-half in­jury time opener with a header from Michael Har­ri­man’s cross on 56 min­utes then net­ted from Joe Ja­cob­son’s lay-off.

Ac­cring­ton hit back six min­utes later but it was a first point in six games for Wy­combe, who visit Grimsby on Satur­day.
