Locals still furious with ref
Pitman squeezes spot kick inside the post even though Phillips went the right way
The official deems Ritchie to have been felled by a combination of Adam Dugdale and Kelvin Mellor, the award looking flimsy.
Cherries take the lead after 59 minutes when Pitman coolly converts from the spot after referee Richard Clark angers the home crowd by pointing to the spot.
Penalty to Cherries
Pogba finds the side netting with a blistering right-foot strike after he controls on his chest a raking crossfield pass from Abdul Osman.
And as play quickly switched to the opposite end, Pitman’s shot trickles past the post following a cross from Simon Francis.
Cherries have escape when Murphy’s free-kick from the edge of the 18-yard comes back off the crossbar with Jalal beaten six minutes after the restart.
Jalal prevents A-Jay Leitch-Smith from drawing first blood for Crewe, the goalkeeper pushing his first-time strike around the post at the start of the second half.
Fogden straight swap for McQuoid on right.
Sub Fogden for McQuoid
Second half underway

One good save from Jalal and one poor miss from Chuks Aneke were the story of the first half.

2 mins of added time.
Luke Murphy more influential than he was at Dean Court.
Lots of nice passing here, not many chances though
4,055 attendance with 246 away
Hughes warms Phillips’s hands with a 25-yard piledriver.
Harry Arter tries his luck twice in quick succession, his first chance deflected over the crossbar, his second drifting wide.
Ritchie booked for foul on Pogba.
Ellis feels the full force of a venomous Pitman free-kick, Ellis rocking as the ball hits him and flies over the crossbar.
Ellis goes close to breaking the deadlock when his low drive from 20 yards flashes past the upright midway through the first half.
Ref has just awarded Crewe a corner when their player headed the ball out!
Chuks Aneke squanders a glorious chance to fire Crewe ahead, the Arsenal loan star scuffing his effort into Jalal’s arms.
Crewe defender Mark Ellis nips in front of Brett Pitman to intercept Matt Ritchie’s cross before Josh McQuoid heads wide following a Lewis Grabban cross.
Hardly any atmosphere here at this huge stadium.
As expected, some decent passing by both teams.
Cherries corner claimed by Phillips.
It's 4-3-3 with Pitman up front and Grabban and McQuoid on the flanks.
Shwan Jalal is called into action inside the opening 60 seconds, the Cherries goalkeeper diving full-length to his left to push Luke Murphy’s rasping drive around the post.
Crewe kick off.
Good following up from Dorset.
Teams on the pitch.
However, Willo reckons Hughes could go left-back and Matt Ritchie on the wing.
Cherries are expected to line up 4-3-3 with Hughes the holding midfielder.
