Millwall 1-3 Crewe
Two errors cost Millwall and left them rooted to the bottom of the table as they lost to fellow strugglers Crewe.

Phil Ifil gave the Lions a shocking start as he allowed Billy Jones' pass to roll under his foot to Steve Jones, who scored.

Barry Hayles's fifth goal of the season from the spot gave Millwall hope but it proved to be a false dawn.

Jermaine Wright gifted Gary Roberts the ball to make it 2-1 before Steve Jones shot home to wrap up the points.

  • Millwall manager Colin Lee:
    "You can understand the frustration of the supporters but they know why the team is not as good as it was last season. The sooner the club gets a clear direction of where it's going the better for everyone.

    "At least the chairman has been trying to address that and he has been big enough to stand up and say he wants someone else to take charge.

    "He just can't spend the time here that is required. Unfortunately for him he has not been able to find anyone to take charge."

  • Crewe boss Dario Gradi:
    "That's the first away league victory since Boxing Day and it's not a relief, it's a pleasure to get three points.

    "It has been a good week for us to get seven out of nine points.

    "Steve Jones took his goals well but we were poor in the first half and I said so at half-time."
