Match ends, Bristol Rovers 0, Accrington Stanley 1.
Billy Kee's overhead kick moments after coming on was a rare moment of quality as Accrington won a forgettable encounter against Bristol Rovers.
Kee had just replaced Josh Windass when he spectacularly scored after a right-wing corner was headed goalwards.
Shay McCartan and Matt Crooks had chances to extend the lead as Rovers failed to pose much threat.
Ollie Clarke's header from Chris Lines' corner late in the first half was their only real moment of danger.
