Ryan Colclough believes Crewe are one of the best sides in League One.
The winger, 18, bagged a brace – both coming after Rovers defender Danny Holems was sent off for his second bookable offence.
He said: “I really enjoyed that.
“We’re up there with the best teams in the league.”
Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro tapped in late on for Rovers and Evan Horwood had no complaints about team-mate Holmes’ dismissal.
He admitted: “It was a red.
“He’s gone in one too many times.”
