What the press made of the crucial Latics win
CREWE Alexandra made it back to back wins for the first time in February and in doing so, moved off the bottom of League One.
They dominated much of the clash at Gresty Road but it was a nervy end having not added to Adam King's 21st minute strike.
The Swansea loanee scored his fifth goal of the season, firing home from 12 yards after Ben Nugent's knockdown, as Crewe held on for a priceless three points.
They put in a disciplined disciplined display from minute one, and showed many of the qualities that were found wanting only seven days ago when they were beaten 5-1 by Peterborough.
Crewe Alex moved off the bottom of the table with a deserved victory over Oldham Athletic at Gresty Road on Saturday.
Adam King’s first half strike separated the sides in a high-stakes affair as the Railwaymen made it back-to-back wins for the first time this season.
It was their first home win over the Latics since 2008, and will have lifted confidence and belief going into a weekend without a fixture.
THE misery continued for Athletic as they slipped to a hugely dis-spiriting third Sky Bet League One defeat in a week, this time at fellow strugglers Crewe.
The visitors created little on another grim afternoon, one which ended with plenty of boo's ringing out from the away supports' section.
