Accrington Stanley 1-0 Burton Albion

Josh Windass
Josh Windass had played 25 times this season without scoring

Josh Windass scored his first league goal to earn a comfortable win for Accrington and end Burton Albion's 13-game unbeaten run.

The League Two leaders last suffered defeat in November, but they failed to break the deadlock against Accrington.

Windass, the son of former Hull player Dean, gave the hosts the lead with a fierce shot from long distance.

Former Accrington man Phil Edwards had the best chance to level for Burton but his header went over the bar.
