Crewe   2 - 1   Port Vale

Crewe 2-1 Port Vale

Crewe 2-1 Port Vale

Crewe closed the gap on the automatic promotion places to three points with victory over local rivals Port Vale.

Crewe were ahead when Clayton Donaldson cut the ball back for Shaun Miller to score his 12th goal of the season.

Vale's equaliser came shortly after half-time as Justin Richards was brought down in the area and he converted the resulting penalty.

But the Alex won the derby when substitute Adam Dugdale headed in from close range to seal the points.


Crewe manager Dario Gradi told BBC Radio Stoke:
"They were remarkable because I've been worried during the week that they've looked jaded.

"The energy they showed was tremendous.

"I thought we deserved the win, without playing well all the time."

Port Vale manager Jim Gannon told BBC Radio Stoke:
"It would be too easy to say that it's my style of football that's made a change.

"You've got to remember that this team, before I took over, had lost three games in a row and struggled to finish off Burton.

"There's a larger problem here and we need to go back to basics."
