Crewe fans react as Spurs loanee J'Neil Bennett scores in win
A number of Crewe Alexandra fans have taken to Twitter to comment on J’Neil Bennett after the Spurs loanee scored a superb goal in only his second appearance for the club on Saturday.
The Railwaymen beat Burton Albion 2-0 to secure their first league victory of the campaign.
The result was not enough to lift the side out of the League One relegation zone. But it has left the supporters feeling a lot more hopeful about their campaign.
And one of the players who stole the show in the victory was Bennett.
It was his cross that was turned in by Burton defender Michael Bostwick for the opener.
And he opened his account for his new club in the 87th minute as the home side looked to kill off the game against the 10-man Brewers.
Bennett began his run inside his own half as he was played in by Josh Lundstram. He continued into the box before cutting inside and finding the bottom corner.
And his performance has left plenty of Crewe fans insisting that he is going to be a huge player for them over the coming months.
No teammate could match his tally of three successful dribbles. He also had more attempts on goal than any other Crewe player.
And several of the fans have suggested that Tottenham appear to have a very special talent on their books.
Of course, it is going to be a big ask for Bennett to really catch Nuno Espirito Santo’s eye while away in League One.
‘He was outstanding’: Crewe fans laud Spurs loanee J’Neil Bennett
But the fans believe that he has an amazing amount of talent. And they hope that his goal will prove the first of many.
With that in mind, here is how some of the Crewe fans reacted to Bennett’s display…
Thought #crewealex were in control of the game for almost its entirety. Should’ve scored more goals but the creativity has improved dramatically. Excellent individual performances from the 3 new signings too especially J’Neil Bennett! His goal in the second half was pure class!

Half time thoughts:
We look like a proper team now, the passing has been great and we look dangerous up top.
Special mention for J’Neil Bennett. #thfc You’ve got a hell of a player on your hands.
