Accrington Stanley 3-2 AFC Wimbledon

James Gray struck a brace for Accrington as they edged out Wimbledon in an entertaining encounter.

On-loan striker Kayode Odejayi gave the hosts an early lead with a placed effort before Gray headed his first and Accrington's second.

Gray hit a post before heading home a Will Hatfield corner to make it 3-0.

Jack Midson struck a penalty for the Dons after Luke Joyce fouled Danny Hylton and Kwesi Appiah's header made it a nervy end but the hosts held on.

The win means Stanley finish the season with just two defeats in 10 matches while Wimbledon end the campaign with two wins in eight.
