Donnelly denies Stanley: Match Review

Published Add your comment

Stockport rallied from two goals down to snatch a point for the second game in succession, drawing 2-2 against Accrington.

George Donnelly's sixth goal of the season six minutes from time denied Accrington.

There were lots of chances created at both ends during a superb first half.

Stockport midfielder Paul Turnbull smashed a shot inches over from 25 yards, before Stanley hit back when Jimmy Ryan fired in a looping shot from even further out which struck the crossbar.

Sean McConville twice forced Stockport goalkeeper Matt Glennon into fine saves, before the visitors swept into a deserved lead in the 39th minute.

Andy Parkinson touched the ball to skipper Andy Procter, and he lashed home a sweet shot from just outside the box.

Terry Gornell's third goal of the season - a close-range finish from an Andy Parkinson cross - put Accrington two clear in the 76th minute, but Stockport pulled one back just two minutes later.

Mark Lynch crossed and 18-year-old substitute Tom Fisher nodded home his first senior goal.

Donnelly levelled matters in style as he crashed home a well-struck shot after a through-ball from strike partner Jamie Proctor.
