Crewe Alexandra 1-0 Bristol City

Byron Moore scored a stoppage-time penalty as Crewe beat winless Bristol City in dramatic fashion.

The game looked set to end in a goalless draw before Moore was brought down on the edge of the penalty area by midfielder Scott Wagstaff.

The winger stepped up and sent City keeper Elliott Parish the wrong way.

Crewe missed a number of chances earlier in the game, with Moore hitting the crossbar and Oliver Turton's shot well saved by Parish.

City's best chance came when Jay Emmanuel-Thomas dispossessed Mark Ellis and was left one-on-one with keeper Steve Phillips, but he could only find the side netting.

The result left Sean O'Driscoll's side bottom of League One, while Crewe sit in 16th.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Bristol City head coach Sean O'Driscoll told BBC Radio Bristol:

Post-match: Bristol City's O'Driscoll

"I didn't think either team deserved to win it and no team deserved to lose it so we would have been delighted with the draw.

"It would have been our first clean sheet and we were resolute at times.

"We probably had the best chance of the game in the first half. Jay went through and you would have bet on him going one-on-one with the goalkeeper he would have scored.

"We could have been talking about a really good defensive performance and a 1-0 win but were talking about a mistake at the death and going home with a loss."
