Referee:

Byron Moore dramatically converted an injury-time penalty as Crewe Alexandra earned back-to-back victories and successive clean-sheets against Bristol City.

Moore had himself won the spot-kick after being tripped by Scott Wagstaff despite the visitors claiming the offence had taken place outside the area.

Lee Molyneux earlier returned to the side for the virus-stricken Brad Inman, although a slow start to proceedings was finally brought to life by Ollie Turton forcing a save from Elliott Parish. Adam Dugdale then nearly took advantage of another Turton attempt from the corner.

However, the visitors were almost presented with the lead midway through the opening half when Jay Emmanuel-Thomas sliced behind after seizing upon Dugdale's underhit backpass.

Molyneux was denied by Parish inside the other area, where Moore volleyed against the crossbar on the end of a great build-up. Chuks Aneke then had a late first-half chance but couldn't properly connect with Matt Tootle's cross.

Home keeper Steve Phillips was called into action following the break while opposite number Parish gathered from both Anthony Grant and Aneke. Bobby Reid next hoisted over for the visitors before Sam Baldock and Brendan Moloney were similarly off-target.

But deep into added time a costly trip on Moore resulted in the same player successfully holding his nerve from the spot and firing his club further towards mid-table courtesy of another heartening victory.
