Leeds' promotion push shunted by Crewe - Stuart James

Copy from Football Unlimited of 02/11/2005.

With trains running behind Crewe's humble ground it seemed almost apposite that Leeds's promotion challenge should be derailed here. Kevin Blackwell had warned his players not to be fooled by Crewe's dismal record of one win in 16 matches but they failed to heed his advice and slipped to an embarrassing defeat which left the Leeds manager apoplectic.

"I am bloody angry," said Blackwell. "I have told the players that won't be tolerated. We got our noses bloodied and Crewe thoroughly deserved it. We could not get any cohesion going whatsoever."

Victory was not enough to lift Crewe out of the relegation zone, though that mattered little to Dario Gradi, who saw his side outplay Leeds for long periods. Indeed they might have won by a much more convincing margin had their striker Steve Jones shown greater composure in front of goal. "He should have had a hat-trick," lamented Gradi. "But we deserved to win. It was our best performance of the season."
