Matty Pearson nets in Accy win

ACHIEVE client Matty Pearson was on the score sheet as Accrington Stanley claimed a deserved 2-0 win at Exeter City in League Two.

Accrington took the lead on 11 minutes as Shay McCartan fired home a superb free-kick.

In the second-half McCartan was foiled again by another smart stop from keeper Bobby Olejnik, but from the resulting corner on 71 minutes Pearson headed into an empty net.

Ollie Watkins fired a free-kick wide and Joel Grant also failed to hit the target as Exeter tried to find a way back into the contest, but Accrington held firm to claim a well-deserved win.
