Accrington Stanley 1-0 Burton Albion- Match Report

Last updated : 24 February 2015
Windass shocks BrewersJosh Windass scored his first league goal to earn a 1-0 win for Accrington and end Burton's 13-game unbeaten run.The table topping Brewers last tasted defeat back in November but they offered little up front against mid-table Accrington in front of a crowd of just 919.It meant their lead at the top remained at just three points as they failed to capitalise on playing when their rivals were not in action.Windass, son of Hull legend Dean, was Stanley's danger man from the off, trying a chip from distance in the 20th minute and it did fly over goalkeeper Jon McLaughlin but was also wide of the goal.However he made his next chance count when Burton lost the ball and Terry Gornell's knockdown was rifled home by Windass from 25 yards in the 23rd minute.Midfielder Windass came close to doubling his lead moments later with a fierce free-kick which McLaughlin had to tip over the crossbar.Burton had barely tested Stanley keeper Scott Davies and Burton boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink brought on three substitutes in quick succession in the second half as they looked for the equaliser.They then found their attacking flair with their best chance falling to a former Accrington player Phil Edwards who was unmarked 12 minutes from time but somehow guided his header over the bar
