Crewe 1-4 Wolves
Wolves kept alive their slim play-off hopes with a comfortable victory away at Crewe, Kenny Miller and Carl Cort both scoring twice at Gresty Road.

Crewe went ahead when Cort handled in the box and Kenny Lunt scored from the spot, but Cort's tap-in levelled it.

Miller gave the visitors the lead from the spot after Paul Ince had been brought down by Neil Sorvel's tackle.

Cort extended the lead by converting Lee Naylor's cross and Miller rounded it off thanks to Ki-Hyeon Seol's cross.

  • Crewe boss Dario Gradi:
    "In the end we were outclassed. They played well and passed the ball well. The goals went in too easily.

    "There didn't look as though there was any danger. I would have to say our defending left a lot to be desired.

    "They had better quality We've got to work hard and work hard for every point we get. We have worked hard but haven't defended properly."

  • Wolves boss Glenn Hoddle:
    ""We've got into good areas in the last third all season and perhaps the penny's dropped that we've got to be more clinical.

    "The movement's better, we look like scoring and we're a more clinical side.

    "Seven goals in two away games is not a bad stat to have and we've conceded from two penalties and a free-kick so we're not conceding from open play."
