Crewe moved into the Sky Bet League Two automatic promotion places following a comfortable 3-1 victory over Notts County at Meadow Lane.

The visitors took the lead inside five minutes when a short-corner routine saw Rio Abedisi’s cross find the head of captain Mickey Demetriou to glance the ball home.

And their advantage was doubled when Luca Ashby-Hammond was adjudged to have taken down Elliott Nevitt inside the area, the striker stepping up to double Crewe’s advantage.

Macaulay Langstaff had the best effort for the Magpies in the first half, seeing his effort saved by Harvey Davies, with Aaron Nemane firing an effort narrowly wide shortly after.

The second half was limited to few chances, but Josh Austerfield would add the visitors’ third with a shot from outside the area.

But Stuart Maynard’s side would add a late consolation when Jim O’Brien’s effort through a crowd of bodies was fumbled into the net by Davies. The result sees the Magpies drop to 13th in the table.
