Accrington Stanley   4 - 0   Cheltenham

Accrington Stanley 4-0 Cheltenham

Accrington Stanley 4-0 Cheltenham

Three goals in eight second-half minutes helped Accrington to a deserved victory over Cheltenham.

A lacklustre game burst into life when Stanley's Chris Turner received the ball before hammering it on off the post for his first ever league goal.

Phil Edwards doubled the lead from the spot after Michael Symes had been fouled by Cheltenham defender Sam Cox.

A double from Bobby Grant - the first a side-foot finish the second a neat chip - completed the Accrington rout.


Cheltenham Town manager Martin Allen told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"It was a tough day, it's been a tough week. Up until the first 20 minutes I thought we had done OK.

"We had too many young boys out there and ever time the ball went into our box, we had no height or power to clear our lines.

"If you come up here to Accrington, you have to have men playing. For the young boys, it's a harsh lesson."
