Accrington up to second after cruising past Barnet

Accrington moved up to second in Sky Bet League Two after a 4-1 win over struggling Barnet.

Stanley dominated the first half and got their deserved goal in the 35th minute through Sean McConville, the captain taking the ball inside the box from Billy Kee and smashing it home for his fourth of the season.

However two minutes later, Barnet were awarded a penalty with Jack Taylor fouled in the area by Jordan Thorniley. Bees striker Jamal Campbell-Ryce hit the underside of the crossbar with his spot-kick and the ball bounced out to safety.

The game then burst into life with three goals in eight minutes after the break.

Stanley made it two on 51 minutes when Thorniley's ball in found Jordan Clark who fired it into the bottom corner for his third in as many games.

Barnet got one back on 54 minutes when Campbell-Ryce made amends for his penalty miss, firing home from a tight angle after a surging run from Jack Taylor.

Kee then took his tally to 11 for the season when he got the ball off Clark on 59 minutes and drilled home from 15 yards.

Striker Kayden Jackson then pushed the ball past keeper Craig Ross and finished with an easy tap-in on 65 minutes to take his own tally to seven for the campaign.
