Result: Crewe Alexandra grab victory over Scunthorpe United

Two goals in two minutes seal victory for Crewe Alexandra over Scunthorpe United in their League One clash.

Crewe Alexandra have moved clear of the League One relegation zone with victory over Scunthorpe United at Gresty Road.

Two goals in two minutes from Greg Leigh and Marcus Haber gave the home side an unassailable lead to leave the teams level on 42 points in the table.

Crewe keeper Paul Rachubka was called into action early on, saving efforts from both Liam O'Neil and Paddy Madden as the visitors pushed for the opening goal.

O'Neil came close once more midway through the half, but his header sailed narrowly over the bar following Conor Townsend's cross.

Madden came close to giving Scunthorpe the lead, but the ball just evaded him after O'Neil's low cross.

Crewe got off to a flying start after half time, with Leigh scoring first after his 20-yard strike struck the underside of the bar and went into the net.

One minute later, Haber doubled the home side's lead with a header from close range after James Jones's cross.

Hakeeb Adelakun almost got one back for Scunthorpe, but his long-range attempt was parried out for a corner by Rachubka, who saved from O'Neil late on to maintain his clean sheet.

The visitors failed to make any of their late chances count, meaning that Crewe claimed all three points in their first win in five matches.
