Accrington 2-1 Bristol Rovers

On-loan Micah Evans scored on his Football League debut to help Accrington defeat Bristol Rovers.

The Blackburn man netted five minutes in after a fine run and low shot.

Fellow loanee Kevin Long made it 2-0 after a superb volley rifled into the roof of the net when Luke Joyce's free-kick found him on the edge of the area.

Rovers pulled one back after Mustapha Carayol's cross was met by Joe Anyinsah before Stanley's Peter Murphy was sent off in injury time for fouling Carayol.
