Crawley Town 0-3 Accrington Stanley

Billy Kee
Accrington striker Billy Kee scored his third goal of the season

Accrington Stanley thrashed Crawley Town 3-0 to move up to fifth in League Two and extend their unbeaten run to seven games.

Josh Windass scored from the spot after Luke Rooney's foul saw him sent off and Matty Crooks smashed home from 25 yards to put Stanley 2-0 up at half-time.

Billy Kee's close-range shot sealed the points for the visitors.

Crawley, who have now lost their last four, went closest through Jon Ashton's weak shot in the early stages.

Crawley Town boss Mark Yates told BBC Surrey:

Yates on Crawley v Accrington

"After 40 minutes I was thinking 'it's not been bad'. We then concede and have a man sent off and a couple of minutes later another one goes in and it's completely different.

"The players are little low on confidence and I think you can all see that when their lad goes down the byline, we had three men around him and still gets the ball in.

"We are trying to get them at it all the time and get their heads up. The third goal sums us up and we let a runner go."
