Accrington Stanley 1-1 Wycombe Wanderers

Wycombe Wanderers moved two points clear at the top of the League Two table after they were held to a draw at Accrington Stanley.

Paris-Cowan Hall curled in his fourth goal in as many games to give the visitors an early lead.

Aaron Pierre then saw his header cleared off the line by Shay McCartan as Wycombe looked to double their lead.

But after the break Sean Maguire headed in Kal Naismith's free-kick at the near post to earn Stanley a point.

Assistant manager Richard Dobson took charge of Wycombe in the absence of boss Gareth Ainsworth, who was absent due to illness.

Wycombe assistant manager Richard Dobson told BBC Three Counties Radio:

Dobson on Accrington v Wycombe

"We're obviously punching above our weight in terms of our league position, sitting pretty at the top of the league.

"If we scored another goal, the game would have been a lot easier for us and it would had been a lot more difficult for them to get back into it.

"It is a good place to come and get a point, they are a tough side who are going well at the moment.

"We finished the game as the aggressors and I thought we could have gone on a nicked something."
