The first half was a scrappy affair with few chances for either side. Accrington had the better of the half but never really looked like scoring. The highlight of the half was Stanley boss John Coleman being sent to the stands early on.

HALF TIME 0-0.

The second half continued in much the same way as the first but at least there were more chances. Jalal ran out of his goal and saved well from ex-Cherry Michael Symes, before both sides had penalty appeals turned down.

In the 67th minute Howe decided it was time for a change and brought on Connell for Fletcher. The lack of a big target man meant the Cherries looked to pass their way to goal and in the 76th minute a Cummings free-kick was glanced home by Hollands. Pitman had a gilt edged chance late on and Jalal made a superb save to ensure all three points and top spot for another week.
