Accrington up to third after beating 10-man Swindon

Accrington moved up to third spot in Sky Bet League Two as Billy Kee and Kayden Jackson grabbed the goals in a 2-1 win over 10-man Swindon.
Kee celebrated his 19th league goal of the season from the penalty spot while Jackson fired home in the second half to make it six wins in seven games for Stanley.
New signing Marc Richards got one back for Swindon but Kellan Gordon saw red after 75 minutes to make it an unhappy night for Dave Flitcroft's men.
Stanley took the lead after 25 minutes when Matty Taylor brought down Sean McConville in the penalty area.
Striker Kee tucked the ball into the bottom left corner, sending Reice Charles-Cook the wrong way.
Stanley doubled their advantage from a swift counter-attack in the 62nd minute when Jackson raced free, sliding home his 11th of the season.
Swindon gave themselves hope after 72 minutes when Richards fired home from the penalty spot after Janoi Donacien brought down substitute Paul Mullin in the area.
But it was an uphill battle when, three minutes later, another Swindon replacement Gordon saw red for violent conduct after a fracas with Stanley's McConville.
