Highlights of the Sky Bet League Two match between Accrington and Crewe.

Mark Hughes bagged a brace as Accrington hit back from two goals down to extend their 13-game unbeaten run courtesy of a 3-2 victory over Crewe.

The looked set to hand Stanley their first defeat in two months after first-half goals from Callum Cooke and Chris Dagnall.

But John Coleman's hosts came roaring back and a double from defender Hughes either side of Shay McCartan's strike handed them a win that keeps alive an outside chance of reaching the Sky Bet League Two play-offs.

Middlesbrough loanee Cooke opened the scoring on the quarter of an hour with a brilliant 25-yard effort, his fourth goal for Crewe since he signed at the end of January.

Crewe continued to create the better chances and George Cooper's ball in on 41 minutes found Dagnall, who dinked home his 13th goal of the campaign.

Stanley got one back on 57 minutes when Hughes scrambled the ball home from close range from a Sean McConville corner.

Four minutes later, Stanley won a free-kick on the edge of the area and McCartan fired it home - the frontman has scored five of his 10 goals this season from free-kicks.
