Two early goals were enough to give Crewe victory at Accrington Stanley.

AJ Leitch-Smith put the Railwaymen in front when he reacted quickest to Shaun Miller's deflected effort to volley home at the back post.

Byron Moore doubled the visitors' advantage, latching on to Ashley Westwood's through ball before finishing well.

Peter Murphy struck the crossbar for Stanley as they missed numerous chances to get back into the game.
