What the press made of the defeat to the IronThe Sentinel
A LATE Miguel Llera goal saw Crewe Alexandra go down 2-1 at Scunthorpe United despite controlling much of the game.
Crewe started the game brightly but found themselves behind after 10 minutes through a Luke Williams strike. They got a deserved equaliser on the half hour through Nicky Ajose and could easily have led going in to the break.
They created a number of opportunities in the second period but sloppy defending was to cost them as Llera toe-poked home at the back post with 13 minutes left to move Scunthorpe outside the relegation zone.
CREWE Alex suffered a damaging defeat to fellow strugglers Scunthorpe as their winless streak was extended to eight games at Glanford Park on Saturday.
The Railwaymen produced some of the best attacking play for the season but only had Nicky Ajose's strike to show for it.
And two moments of sloppy defending were punished by Luke Williams and Miguel Llera to see the Iron move six points ahead of their guests.
That has left Steve Davis's men six points adrift of safety with three matches against some of League One's high-fliers coming up next.
SCUNTHORPE United moved out of the bottom four for the first time this season after they beat Crewe Alexandra 2-1 at Glanford Park.
A goal in each half, scored by Luke Williams and Miguel Llera, sandwiched a strike by former Iron loanee Nicky Ajose to give United victory over one of their relegation rivals.
