Chuks Aneke set up a goal, missed a penalty and struck the crossbar during an eventful afternoon for the 20 year old as Crewe Alexandra drew 1-1 with Swindon Town. Aneke stepped up to take the spot-kick after the ball had struck Ryan Harley’s arm, but he sent his effort well over the target. The midfielder then struck the crossbar in the second-half before finally receiving a reward for his endeavours when he teed up Vadaine Oliver to equalise.
