Accrington Stanley rose to 15th in the League Two table after a 5-1 derby demolition of rivals Morecambe.

Lee Molyneux got Stanley off to the perfect start with an early strike before Kal Naismith added a second from the penalty spot with just 10 minutes on the clock.

Second half headers from centre back pairing Dean Winnard and Tom Aldred made it 4-0 just after the hour mark.

Former Stanley striker Padraig Amond reduced the deficit six minutes from time but Molyneux still had time to add his second and his side's fifth to seal the success. 

The result leaves James Beattie's side six points clear of the bottom two.
