THERE’S rarely time to rest watching Accrington Stanley these days and the Reds continued a run of high scoring affairs with a home draw against Wycombe Wanderers.

The 2-2 scoreline made it 19 goals shared in the last four outings for John Coleman and brought a first EFL goal for Sean Clare, two for Stanley nemesis Adebayo Akinfenwa and another for the in form Matty Pearson.

Stanley looked to assert themselves early on, with Sean Clare heading straight at Jamal Blackman before fizzing a low cross agonisingly beyond Billy Kee inside the box.

Conditions were difficult to say the least, with the visitors looking for the physical presence of Akinfenwa whenever they could.

Largely the Reds were asking the questions though with a Shay McCartan run from half way allowing Jordan Clark to sting Blackman’s fingers with a shot from outside the box and the Stanley wideman then driving another effort wide.

In truth neither goalkeeper was unduly tested in the first half an hour, though a fine run by Pearson ended with the Stanley full back stabbing a right foot effort narrowly wide.

Clare was having a lively first half and continued to cause the Chairboys problems with a 20 yard strike that flew narrowly wide of the right post.

One minute of added time brought just enough time for Clare to open the scoring, meeting another Clark corner with a flick header at the near post and sending the ball off the underside of the bar and beyond Blackman to net his first in the red shirt.

Wycombe’s attempts to respond started early in the second period, with Akinfenwa heading a Joe Jacobson free kick over Marek Rodak’s bar before Paris Cowan-Hall lashed a shot out of the ground.

Soon it was time for Akinfenwa to take centre stage. First the former AFC Wimbledon striker met Michael Harriman’s right wing cross with a well placed header that beat Rodak to make it 1-1.

Then a matter of seconds later he had another, bringing down a long Jacobson throw, possibly with an arm, spinning and finding the bottom right corner to make it 2-1.

Rather than be stunned, Stanley attacked and were level again five minutes later. Pearson has become the man for important goals lately and continued the theme, rising highest at the far post to head a Clark free kick in for his fifth of the campaign.

Now the game ebbed and flowed, with McCartan denied by a Will De Havilland foul as he broke down the right and Mark Hughes forced a superb save from Blackman before Clark hit the woodwork having found space in the left side of the box.

At the other end, Wycombe remained a threat and thought a late shot from another corner had crossed the line but the officials were unmoved and instead Stanley’s Scott Brown drove wide in the final minute as they looked to win it instead.

A draw brought a fourth game unbeaten for the Reds and an important point which could easily have been three. Or none. That’s the way it’s going at the moment.
