Accrington put seven past sorry Bolton

Accrington ended their goal drought in style with a resounding 7-1 victory over 10-man Bolton.

John Coleman’s men had not scored in more than six hours of league football and went behind in the fifth minute to a Wanderers team who had won three league games on the bounce.

Thibaud Verlinden’s trickery led to a cross to the far post, with Daryl Murphy blasting home.

Stanley were then awarded a penalty after 15 minutes for a foul by Josh Earl on Dion Charles. Earl was shown a red card and Colby Bishop punished the visitors by firing home the spot-kick.

Ross Sykes headed against the post before Bishop netted his second with a diving header from a Seamus Conneely cross.

Accrington made it three through Sean McConville on 33 minutes, the winger volleying home from a Charles delivery.

It was 4-1 after 54 minutes, when Jordan Clark’s cross was tapped home from close range by McConville.

Charles hooked home a fifth at the far post on 75 minutes, before substitute Offrande Zanzala celebrated a late double with goals in the 80th minute and stoppage time.
