Brentford 3-0 Accrington

Sam Williams
Williams grabbed the early goal to set Brentford on their way

Leaders Brentford edged closer to automatic promotion with a comfortable victory over mid-table Accrington.

Sam Williams struck the early opener, sending a looping header from Karleigh Osborne's cross-field ball over the head of Stanley keeper Kenny Arthur.

Ryan Dickson made it two just before the break when he latched onto a Sam Wood through ball before slotting home.

And Billy Clarke completed the scoring when he coolly scored from the spot after Sam Williams had been fouled.

The three points mean a win against Dagenham and Redbridge on Tuesday will guarantee the Bees promotion to League One.
