Debutant Dagnall condemns Alex to defeat

First published in Sport

CREWE Alexandra took an early lead against table toppers Leyton Orient, but a double from debutant Chris Dagnall stole three points for the visitors.

The Railwaymen remain second from bottom in League One after Dagnall scored twice in seven minutes to cancel out Byron Moore’s opener.

After a goalless first half Chucks Aneke beat his man and his powerful drive was palmed into the path of Moore, who poked in to open the scoring on 53 minutes.

However, as the hour mark struck the O’s were level as debutant Dagnall fired home from the dge of the area after collecting Dean Cox’s pass.

It took Dagnall seven minutes to grab his second, Kevin Lisbie teed up Mathieu Baudry’s delivery for the former Barnsley striker to volley home.

Watford loanee Uche Ikpeazu came on for his Alex debut and twice went close in the final 20 minutes, but was unable to stop Steve Davis’ slipping to their first home loss since November..
