MARTIN: Could have done better with Thomas's opening goal, but atoned with a string of crucial stops 7
TOOTLE: Struggled to deal with the rampaging McLeod, but did his best to get the team moving forward 6
DAVIS: Failed to impose himself at the back and nearly gifted Thomas a one-on-one chance to make it three late on 5
ELLIS: Crewe's most assured defensive performer 6
CLAYTON: Ineffective in the Crewe midfield and did little to threaten Pompey 5
MURPHY: One of the more industrious Crewe players, but his set-pieces failed to worry Pompey 6
POGBA: More effective after the break, but still unable to craft a clear sight of goal 7
LEITCH-SMITH: Unable to impose himself on the game before hobbling off after half-an-hour 6
MELLOR: A few sloppy moments at right-back gave his side problems 5
ANEKE: Battled well in the midfield in a bid to get Crewe moving forward 7
BOND: Unlucky to give away a penalty, but nearly slid the ball through his own net and looked far from composed 5
MOORE (for Leitch-Smith, 30): Proved a lively presence whenever he got a sniff of the ball 7
