Cambridge United 2-2 Accrington Stanley

Cambridge United were denied their first home win in nine league matches as Seamus Conneely fired home a late equaliser at the Abbey Stadium.

Tom Elliott gave the hosts an early lead before Piero Mingoia's strike drew Accrington level.

Ryan Bird put Cambridge in front after his effort deflected home after Gearoid Morrissey guided a cross into his path.

But Conneely notched his second in two games when he struck from close range to give the visitors a dramatic point.
