Crewe   5 - 1   Accrington Stanley

Crewe 5-1 Accrington Stanley

Crewe 5-1 Accrington Stanley

Calvin Zola scored twice as Crewe easily brushed Accrington aside.

Zola met Clayton Donaldson's knock-down to put Crewe ahead and Donaldson raced clear to make it 2-0 before John Brayford's own goal gave Stanley hope.

Accrington keeper Ian Dunbavin was sent off for fouling Donaldson and Ashley Westwood scored from the rebound after his resulting penalty was saved.

Joel Grant rifled home a fourth goal before Zola made it 5-1 in injury time when he finished off a neat move.


Crewe manager Dario Gradi told BBC Radio Stoke:

"Matt Tootle went haywire at times, but the other three defenders were good, particularly John Brayford.

"We picked up a bit at half time and in the end we did enough to win the game.

"Donaldson finished well and it was good to see Joel Grant get a goal because he needs to make and score more goals."
