Paper Review: Forest Green 3-2 Crewe

20 November 2017

The Chronicle

A GOAL deep into injury time has sent Crewe Alex into the bottom three of League Two on Saturday.

They led twice - through Chris Porter’s first goal in 14 outings and Jordan Bowery’s fifth of the campaign – but had been pegged back by a Christian Doidge brace with seven minute to play.

Then Alex Lacovitti popped up to slam home the winner from a 93rd minute corner and make it eight straight away defeats for the Railwaymen.

Their situation is getting ever-more urgent, and they face a crunch game at fellow strugglers Morecambe on Tuesdaty night.

Crewe wanted to improve on their recent record in the first ever meeting between the sides, at the New Lawn Stadium.

ALEX IACOVITTI’S 93rd minute winner saw Forest Green boss Mark Cooper perform an Antonio Conte celebration dash along the touchline as the roof came off the New Lawn.

Cooper danced along the rain-soaked touchline as his side made it four wins from five unbeaten games.

Earlier, Crewe nosed ahead through a Chris Porter 14th minute strike. Christian Doidge levelled things up before the break, but the Railwaymen edged in front when Jordan Bowery netted. Rovers fought back with Doidge netting his second with seven minutes to go before Iacovitti raised the roof in stoppage-time.
