    Highlights of the Sky Bet League Two match between Portsmouth and Crewe.

    Portsmouth's automatic promotion hopes suffered a blow as Paul Cook's side slumped to a 1-0 defeat at home to lowly Crewe at Fratton Park.

    George Ray's header 13 minutes from time capped a miserable week for Pompey after being held to a disappointing 1-1 draw by Morecambe on Tuesday.

    Callum Cooke sent in a ball from the left and defender Ray rose highest at the back post to nod past home goalkeeper David Forde.

    Crewe would have been in front seconds before half-time but for Enda Stevens clearing a Ben Nugent header off the line after Forde flapped at a corner.

    The visitors produced a stubborn defensive display, reducing Pompey to few clear-cut scoring opportunities.

    Striker Eoin Doyle should have done better with a ninth-minute header which he sent over the crossbar from Stevens' centre.
