Crewe Alexandra slumped to another loss at home after being hammered 4-0 by Tranmere Rovers in the National League U19 Alliance.

The Alex continued in their search for their first win of the season, as a brace from Tyreek helped to extend the home side’s losing run to five games.

It was a slow start by Tranmere in the first 15 minutes, but the visitors soon stepped up their game and went in at half time 2-0 up and looking good value for it.

Crewe Alex showed their lack of match time this season on the back of a two week break and, whilst they controlled a lot of the ball, the second half followed the same path as the first as the home side conceded two more goals.

Despite them obviously missing their strong defenders, Crewe still came away disappointed with the result where they controlled the tempo up until the last 20 minutes where Tranmere stepped up a gear and saw out the game.

Crewe Head Coach Ray Walker spoke after the game and admitted that on reflection, the Tranmere side deserved all three points after Crewe failed to make the most of their possession in the face of the visitor’s ‘intensity’.
