Miller Goal Sees Off Blackpool

Miller Goal Sees Off Blackpool

Shaun Miller scored the only goal of the game as Crewe continued their winning streak in tonight's friendly at Gresty Road.

We have now won all six pre-season games for the summer having previously beaten West Brom, Lancaster, Nantwich, Kidsgrove and Quorn in friendly games this month.

Tonight, Shaun Miller's 33rd minute tap in from a Clayton Donaldson header was enough to see off the 'challenge' of Premier League new boys Blackpool and it could possibly have been more but for some good goalkeeping from the Seasiders keeper.

Both Dario and Blackpool boss Ian Holloway named strong sides for the match. Dario opted for what looks like could be his starting 11 for the new season whilst Holloway included the likes of former Alex winger David Vaughan, defender Alex Baptiste and star man Charlie Adam in his travelling squad.

There was still room however for the latest kid from the Alex academy, Nick Powell. The highly rated 16 year old attacker was given his first run out in the first team and with a few neat touches and runs will done himself no harm in his push for a first team spot this season.

Next up in the pre-season schedule is the visit of old foes Wrexham to Gresty Road on Saturday (kick off 3pm) then a trip to Kidderminster on Monday evening (KO 7:45pm) but focus is steadily turning to the big one a week on Saturday - Hereford at home for the first game of the 2010-2011 season!

Crewe Alexandra managed to give supporters a long-awaited victory in their final home game of the season against Doncaster Rovers.

Davis happy with finale

Manager Steve Davis was happy and doubtless very relieved to witness Crewe Alexandra complete their home programme with a 3-1 victory against Doncaster Rovers.

Crewe recover for victory

Crewe Alexandra came from behind for a first win in sixteen games and to drag Doncaster Rovers down into League Two with them for next season.

Kick-off was delayed by half-an-hour due to a waterlogged playing surface and Tommy Rowe gave the visitors the lead through a deflected strike.

However, youngster Callum Ainley equalised with his first senior goal before the break and Marcus Haber and substitute Brad Inman added second-half efforts.
