Oliver Finney scored twice as Crewe thumped 10-man Morecambe 5-0 to climb up to third in the Sky Bet League Two table.

Finney headed the hosts in front in the 22nd minute before Tom Lowery doubled their advantage nine minutes later. Things went from bad to worse for Morecambe when Sam Lavelle saw red in the 34th minute and Charlie Kirk increased Crewe’s advantage four minutes later.

Lowery almost scored again four minutes before half-time but his effort from the edge of the area clattered the post. Crewe eventually got their fourth, though, with Ryan Wintle firing in after 58 minutes.

Finney added gloss to the scoreline with his second and Crewe’s fifth in added time. The result saw Morecambe slip to the bottom of the table.
