Lussey Derails Crewe

Jordan Lussey netted a late winner as Liverpool U18s won their first game of 2012 with a 1-0 success over Crewe Alexandra on Saturday morning.

Mike Marsh's side, who had striker Jordan Ibe making his debut, had to work hard for their victory in a match played out in a gale force wind.

Lussey found the net six minutes from time when he found space just outside the box and his shot took a wicked deflection on its way into the net.

It was only the young Reds second win on home turf in 2011-12 and this will give them confidence for the rest of the campaign.

Crewe was unfortunate not to take anything from the game but Reds stopper Tyrell Belford pulled off two superb saves.
