Crewe Alexandra's on loan midfielder Brad Inman claimed a late winner against struggling Bury at Gresty Road.

Skipper Luke Murphy was the provider as the Newcastle United youngster scored for the second successive weekend to move his side up to eleventh in the table.

Troy Hewitt volleyed wide early on for the visitors while Matt Tootle drove over in reply before Chuks Aneke forced a decent stop from goalkeeper Trevor Carson.

Bury were actually showing well despite their lowly position and Tom Hopper tried a couple of headers while Carson was forced to block with his feet from Inman after being released by Aneke.

Lauri Dalla Valle next fired into the side-netting from a narrow angle before home keeper Alan Martin turned over from David Worrall ahead of the break.

Crewe reverted to a more familiar 4-4-2 set-up at the start of the second period and substitute Byron Moore soon allowed Mathias Pogba to have a header saved by Carson. Skipper Murphy also struck at the keeper from distance before Pogba nodded over Gregor Robertson's inviting cross.

But the visitors continued to be a threat with Martin denying both Hewitt and Mark Hughes until Hopper proved wasteful when heading Worrall's deep cross behind.

And they were made to pay as Inman finally settled the contest just before the end when neatly turning in his second goal in three games since arriving from St James' Park.
