What the prees made of the draw at The PoshThe Sentinel
CREWE again squandered a fine first-half performance but in the end will be happy to have left London Road with a point.
Lauri Dalla Valle handed them a third minute lead and the Alex could quite easily have built on their impressive first half showing.
However, after the break it was a different story and Crewe had to show real character as they secured a precious point on the road that sees them move outside of the relegation places with three games to go.
Crewe Alex moved out of the League One relegation zone thanks to a battling draw at London Road on Tuesday night.
The Railwaymen produced an excellent first-half performance, but should have earned more reward than Lauri Dalla Valle's third minute opener.
The second half was an entirely different story, with Posh almost battering the visitors into submission.
They got level through Conor Washington but some stubborn defending and good goalkeeping helped the Alex to the second successive 1-1 draw.
With most of the other results in the lower reaches of the division going their way, the point lifted Crewe to 19th place - one point out of the bottom four.
So the Peterborough United journey we were all invited to join is pretty much over for this season.
It will be - barring point deductions for a few rivals or acts of God - a third straight season in League One for Posh after the battle between the division’s most out-of-form attack and the leakiest defence finished with honours even. The point from a 1-1 draw at the ABAX Stadium suited struggling Crewe and their 98 travelling supporters more than the home side and the visitors deserved to take something from the contest for their enterprise in the first-half and for withstanding a second-half battering without sustaining too much damage.
