Match ends, Crewe Alexandra 0, Crawley Town 0.
Crewe and Crawley played out a goalless draw that did little for either side's League One survival aspirations.
Jamie Ness had the best opportunity of the first half as his fierce shot stung the hand of Crawley's Brian Jensen.
It took almost an hour for the Red Devils to register a shot as Lanre Oyebanjo sent the ball high and wide from the edge of the box.
Crewe remain two points above the drop zone, while Crawley are a point adrift of safety.
The Alex will now be without Anthony Grant for the next two matches after the midfielder tripped Izale McLeod and picked up his 10th booking of the season.
Crawley Town boss Dean Saunders told BBC Surrey:
"I thought the ball went over the line and the lad said that it wasn't, but really someone has got to poke that one in the back of the net. It was bouncing around the box and we had numerous balls into their box but we never got on the end of them.
"We are on a decent run and we lost last week, so getting a point away from home in such a crunch game, and as long as we win on Monday, it's a good result.
"That point might keep us up, every point is vital for us and we stayed in the game. We were much better in the second half and we didn't throw the game away."
