Evans: Scored Stanley's equaliser

Accrington fought back to earn a well deserved 1-1 draw against struggling Hereford at Edgar Street on Friday night.

Frenchman Yoann Arquin's fifth-minute strike was cancelled out in the second-half by Accrington substitute Micah Evans. Hereford goalkeeper Adam Bartlett dropped the ball at the feet of Evans, who converted from close range.

Hereford swept into an early lead when Arquin latched onto a cross from Ryan Green before driving the ball past Ian Dunbavin from just inside the penalty area. Accrington responded with Bryan Hughes driving a fierce free kick at Bartlett, who turned it around the post for a corner.

Bartlett also saved from Jayden Stockley before Hereford's Tom Barkhuizen curled a 25-yard free-kick past the post. On the stroke of half time, Dunbavin made a save to deny Hereford a second when he saved a low shot from full-back Ryan Green.

Dunbavin was in action again, saving a goal-bound header from Rob Purdie from a Barkhuizen corner. Barkhuizen also had an effort saved in the 60th minute, but Accrington rallied with midfielder Andrew Proctor drilling a 20-yard shot inches over the crossbar.

Stanley, however, eventually levelled after 72 minutes when Bartlett dropped a cross from Sean Hessey at the feet of Evans, who bundled it over the line.
