U23: Birmingham City 0-1 Crewe

24 October 2016

Late Ainley strike gives Crewe victory

Callum Ainley struck late in Birmingham as Alex Morris' Under 23 side snatched victory against the Blues.

The game looked to be heading towards a goalless draw before Ainley swept home on 84 minutes to send the Alex back to Cheshire with all three points.

Earlier on, Daniel Udoh put a first half penalty wide of the target before the hosts had a goal chalked off via Jack Storer.

The results gets the side back to winning ways after a defeat to Coventry and draw with Bolton in the previous two outings, and a second clean sheet of the season was a welcome bonus.

Crewe: Richards, Bullock, Ng, Ray, Yates, Wintle, Finney, Pickering, Ainley, Udoh, Saunders
