Fleetwood Town 0-2 Crewe Alexandra

Crewe's first goals in four matches proved enough to win at Fleetwood.

Owen Dale and Chris Porter were on target as two mid-table sides played out an entertaining clash.

After Fleetwood's Barrie McKay fluffed a terrific early chance, it was Crewe who broke the deadlock in the 24th minute. Luke Murphy slid a low cross into the path of Dale and he took a touch before side-footing comfortably home from 12 yards.

The hosts then had a great chance to level when Crewe sub Donervon Daniels tripped Callum Camps but Kyle Vassell saw his penalty superbly saved by Will Jaaskelainen.

Vassell's thumping header was saved by Jaaskelainen shortly before the break, and a similar effort from Crewe's Mickael Mandron flew narrowly off target just past the hour mark.

Crewe wrapped up victory in the 83rd minute when veteran Porter routinely slotted home a penalty after Fleetwood skipper Callum Connolly had dragged back substitute Anthony Evans.
