Peter Murphy: Crucial late goal

Peter Murphy: Crucial late goal

Peter Murphy volleyed an injury-time winner to give Accrington a 1-0 victory over Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium.

Murphy connected superbly with Danny Webber's knock down from a left-wing cross to make it a league double over Rovers for the second successive season.

The home side only had themselves to blame for an off-key display, although Kaid Mohamed hit the outside of a post with a 57th-minute shot.

A disjointed first half saw Matt Harrold head narrowly over for Rovers after 12 minutes, while Accrington's Piero Mingoia forced a save from Steve Mildenhall with a low drive.

The best effort of the opening 45 minutes came from Mohamed. The loan signing from Port Vale produced a strong run and fierce shot shortly before the break but Stanley goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli parried the effort.

Murphy headed wide as both teams struggled to create clear openings.

It was a similar story after the break with Eliot Richards firing over Rovers' best chance, until Murphy had the final say right at the end of the game.
