A spectacular brace from Oli Finney gave Crewe Alexandra Under 23's a superb 2-1 victory over Sheffield United at Stockbridge Park Steels.
Eddie Nolan also got through 90 minutes on his return from injury in what was a positive afternoon overall for the Alex.
Finney picked up the ball outside the box on the half hour mark & struck a sweet effort from distance right into the corner.
Stephen Mallon levelled matters before half-time for the Blades, cutting in from the left & firing across goalkeeper Will Jaaskelainen into the far corner.
Home goalkeeper Jordan Amissah was forced to make two good saves early in the second half from Reilly & then Finney.
The Alex man notched his second of the game & the eventual match-winner on 71 minutes, curling a left-footed effort into the top corner from the edge of the box.
The Blades put some late pressure on the Alex goal, but Crewe held firm to record three points in the PDL2.
