Crewe Alexandra 1-0 Sheffield United

Ryan Colclough
Ryan Colclough has now scored four goals in all competitions so far this season

Ryan Colclough hit the winner as League One's bottom side Crewe claimed victory over Sheffield United.

Jose Baxter forced a flying save from Ben Garratt with a long-range effort as the visitors started brightly.

However, Colclough's off-balance scuff and Marcus Haber's glancing header both skewed narrowly wide as the hosts settled into the game.

Colclough then scored Crewe's first goal in four games as he rifled past Mark Howard to seal the win.
