Two-goal Billy Kee unlocks Port Vale defence to hand Accrington victory

Two goals from Billy Kee helped Accrington come from behind to beat struggling Port Vale 2-1 at Vale Park.
The home side had gone in front after David Worrall scored his first Vale goal but efforts from Stanley's top scorer Kee either side of half-time secured the points for the visitors.
The result leaves the Valiants third from bottom and without a league win since the opening day, while Stanley move up to third in League Two.
Vale took a deserved lead after 22 minutes when Tyrone Barnett cleverly flicked the ball into the path of the oncoming Worrall, who fired low past keeper Aaron Chapman.
Stanley were level in the 36th minute when the ball fell to Kee on the edge of the box, after Vale failed to clear, before he drilled his first-time effort in off the post.
The winner came after 62 minutes when poor Vale defending allowed the visitors space to play a square ball from the left for Kee to tap in from close range.
