Match Report

 

Billy Kee struck a dramatic injury time winner at Luton to send Accrington Stanley top of Sky Bet League Two.

Kee’s winner, the second of two stunning strikes for Stanley, sparked memorable scenes in front of the travelling supporters as the Reds leapfrogged the Hatters into top spot.

Sean McConville had fired Stanley ahead on the stroke of half time following an end to end opening period. The home side fought back strong in the second 45 and levelled it up on the hour, when Eliott Lee finished following a lightning counter attack.

With the clock ticking in added time, Kee picked the ball up outside the area and slammed the ball into the bottom corner, the perfect moment to score his 22nd goal of the season.
