Accrington 2-1 MK Dons: Stanley fight back to record first win
Last Updated: 31/08/19 6:57pm
Accrington celebrated their first win of the season after coming from behind to beat MK Dons 2-1.
Stanley dominated the early play but it was MK Dons who opened the scoring in the 18th minute.
Rhys Healey's ball over the top found last season's 22-goal striker Kieran Agard and he outmuscled Mark Hughes and fired home. It was his first goal of the season.
Stanley were unlucky not to equalise in the 27th minute when Joe Pritchard's strike hit the underside of the crossbar, bounced down and was cleared.
The Reds got the goal their play deserved in the 52nd minute when a Jordan Clark strike was kept out by a combination of goalkeeper Lee Nicholls and the post, and Colby Bishop was there to fire home the rebound for his fourth goal of the season.
The comeback was complete in the 59th minute when Pritchard's ball in found Hughes at the far post and his bullet header beat Nicholls.
Stanley should have made it three in the 64th minute when Clark was fouled in the area but Nicholls dived the right way to keep out Bishop's penalty.
Healey had a goal ruled out for offside in injury time.
