IT was a disappointing Easter for Accrington Stanley as they picked up two points out of six in their play-off chase against teams in the lower half of the Conference.
The Reds threw away a two goal lead against Burton on Good Friday after Robbie Williams and Ian Craney had given them a cushion. But keeper Paul Crichton pushed a corner into his own goal before Burton scored from another flag kick six minutes from time to share the spoils.
Then, on Monday, it was Stanley who had to battle back against York in front of a bumper 2,000 plus crowd at the Interlink. York raced into a two goal lead in the second half after Jonathon Maloney and Andy Bishop had put the Yorkshire side in front. But Paul Mullin scored his 18th league goal of the campaign and Gary Roberts scored his first goal for the Reds to finish the comeback.
"It means, in the last five games now, we have to win as many as possible," said boss John Coleman. "We were expected to win both so it is disappointing but I was relieved to get a point after York had gone ahead.
"Against Burton, I felt we tired towards the end as the long trip to Canvey Island in midweek caught up with us."
