Crewe 3 – 0 Harrogate T

Crewe maintained their strong start as they returned to Sky Bet League Two by recording a comfortable 3-0 win over Harrogate.

The Railwaymen dominated the first half and two goals from set pieces just before the break from Dan Agyei and Kelvin Mellor put them on the path to their second victory in their first two games.

Callum Ainley went close twice at the start, going past the foot of a post and then unleashing a first effort that just went over the bar.

When Peter Jameson failed to save on loan Brentford winger Lachlan Brook’s angled shot, evasive action was required from a visiting defender as the ball raced towards goal.

Crewe’s Bassala Sambou came close with a curling effort, but it was from the dead ball that his team made him score.

Zac Williams headed a corner on goal and Agyei pushed forward and netted a close range header in the 44th minute.

Then Harrogate were defeated from another corner, which was met with a thunderous header at the far post from Mellor in stoppage time.

The Yorkshire visitors emerged from their shell after the break and Luke Armstrong eyed a header before the striker squirmed into space inside the box, only to lift his effort .

Jaheim Headley smashed a shot into the side netting, but Crewe sealed the victory in the 77th minute when substitute Courtney Baker-Richardson continued his initial effort, which was parried by Jameson and dug into the corner of the net .
