Crewe Alexandra are battling against relegation to League Two this season.
David Artell’s side did win their previous game, against Charlton Athletic, who are 14th.
Mikael Mandron’s 48th minute goal eventually decided the game. His strike put the home side 2-0 up, before an 80th minute consolation goal from Mason Burstow brought Charlton back into the game in the final stages.
This moved Crewe ahead of Gillingham in the table, who are now three points behind in 23rd. Wimbledon, in 20th, remain four points ahead and they have three games in hand on top of that points gap.
Crewe next face Shrewsbury on January 15.
