James Jones got 70 minutes under his belt on his return from injury as Crewe Alexandra suffered late disappointment at Millwall, conceding a 94th minute leveler to draw 1-1 at The Den.

Oliver Finney's poachers effort in the first half looked to have secured an impressive 1-0 victory in London, but for that late equaliser.

Josh Lundstram went close for the Alex in the 15th minute, but his near post strike was kept out down low by veteran goalkeeper David Martin.

The opening goal came with 27 minutes on the clock thanks to Finney. A Lions mistake at the back allowed Regan Griffiths through on goal, Martin saved the strike but Oli was quickest to the loose ball to tuck home the rebound.

Fred Onyedinma & Aiden O'Brien combined to create a clear opening for Tom Elliott the hosts just after the hour mark, but he spurned the attempt.

Much of the second half passed without incident until Joe Lynch almost made the safe in the 89th minute on the counter-attack, but Martin saved the firm strike well.

Then, four minutes into stoppage time, Millwall forced an equaliser. George Alexander broke free of his marker to head home & ensure the points were shared.

Next up for Alex Morris side is a meeting with Bristol City at Gresty Road on Wednesday 13 March, 1pm kick-off. Entry is free.
