STREAM LINKS >>> Sunderland vs Accrington Stanley free stream online League One Full HD
Clearly, automatic promotion is a far cry, especially given Sunderland’s disastrous current run of form. They are the only team in the division alongside Ipswich Town without a win in their last five games.
Accrington Stanley, on the other hand, are sandwiched right in the middle of the league table. They could leapfrog straight into the playoff spots with a strong finish to their campaign.
They’re currently 12th with 61 points, just five behind sixth-placed Charlton Athletic. This promises to be a thrilling tussle.
Posh wasted no time and were two goals up inside nine minutes as Clarke-Harris twice snuck in for close-range finishes, while Sammi Szmodics added a third in the 23rd minute thanks to a fine Joe Ward assist.
Szmodics broke through a shaky Accy backline to extend Peterborough’s lead in the 48th minute and Clarke-Harris completed his treble after the visitors failed to deal with another Ward cross.
With Stanley’s heads bowed, substitute Mo Eisa got in on the goalscoring act after racing onto a Szmodics pass and rounding the goalkeeper. Not to be denied his own goal from the bench, Idris Kanu made it seven in the 82nd minute.
