Crewe Alexandra 2-0 Accrington Stanley

Two late goals from Max Clayton and Luke Murphy earned victory for Crewe over Accrington Stanley to aid their push for the League Two play-offs.

Stanley could have gone ahead early on at Gresty Road, but Steve Phillips did well to keep out Jamie Devitt's effort.

The Alex dominated throughout most of the game, taking the lead when teenage striker Clayton volleyed home superbly.

Murphy then wrapped up the game in stoppage time when the young midfielder bundled the ball into the net.


Crewe manager Steve Davis told BBC Stoke:

"I've just told them that the result for me is more important, the performance comes second.

"They set up to make it difficult for us, pressurising us quite high and putting us under a lot of pressure.

"I'm pleased that the young boys stuck at it. Max came on and did what I asked him to do, getting us a goal."
