Accrington Stanley promoted to third tier for first time
Accrington Stanley clinched promotion to League One for the first time in their history as striker Billy Kee’s brace saw them beat Yeovil Town.
Kee, the top scorer in League Two, headed in Sean McConville’s corner to open the scoring and he added a second with a rebound just moments later.
John Coleman’s side – now unbeaten in 14 matches – also extended their lead at the top of the table to four points.
Kee almost had a hat-trick late on, but volleyed in to the side-netting.
A minimum of two wins from their remaining four games would guarantee Stanley the League Two title.
