Gow brace gets Grecians going

Substitute Guillem Bauza, who earlier saw a penalty saved by

Stanley goalkeeper Ian Dunbavin, was also on the scoresheet for the

Grecians in injury time.

Gow fired low from the edge of the penalty area into the bottom

left-hand corner of the goal in the 14th minute after Stanley

failed to clear their lines. And, after 54 minutes, Gow tricked his

way through on the left, got past the home defence and scored from

a tight angle to seal a second successive win for Exeter.

Both were superb solo goals from the Scot and were the first

goals Accrington had conceded this season in the league.

Stanley had chances at 1-0 as Luke Joyce had a 15-yard effort

cleared off the line by defender Danny Coles with keeper Artur

Krysiak stranded. And, just before the second goal, Padraig Amond

had the ball in the net for the hosts but it was ruled out for

offside.

Exeter could have made it 3-0 after 72 minutes when Stanley

substitute Aidan Chippendale brought down Scott Bennett in the area

but Bauza’s penalty was pushed out for a corner by Dunbavin. They

did add a third in injury time when John O’Flynn headed down for

Bauza to finish from close range.
