Crewe   4 - 2   Grimsby

Crewe 4-2 Grimsby

Crewe 4-2 Grimsby

Grimsby remain four points adrift of safety at the bottom of League Two after being outfought by Crewe.

The Alex led when Joel Grant teed up Bryan Moore to fire home from 12 yards.

Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro found the corner of the net to level before Moore set up Grant to restore the lead and Dean Sinclair made it 2-2 from close range.

Ashley Westwood's stunner restored the lead and Alex had Carl Martin dismissed for a late challenge before Clayton Donaldson's solo effort sealed the win.


Crewe manager Dario Gradi told BBC Radio Stoke:
"I don't know what he [Carl Martin] did to get sent off, I didn't watch. I was still raging at the fact that he chose to run with the ball when I told him not to.

"Until I can trust him to do as he's told, he won't figure again.

"Whatever ban he gets will be music to my ears."
