Two goals in the last four minutes gave Accrington a 3-0 win over the 10 men of Port Vale.
Stanley took the lead in the 43rd minute when midfielder Sean McConville received a cheeky back-heel from Ian Craney in the area and fired home his ninth goal of the season.
Craney added a late second four minutes from time after Vale had been reduced to 10 men following the dismissal of Sean Rigg.
Captain Andy Procter added the third on 90 minutes to make it five successive wins at home for Stanley which has propelled them to the fringe of the play-offs.
For Vale boss Jim Gannon, who has won just four of his 15 games in charge of the Valiants, it led to chants of 'Gannon out' by the numerous Vale fans who have seen their side's promotion hopes falter.
