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
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.
