RONAN CURTIS SCORED his seventh and eighth goals of the season, as Portsmouth beat Crewe 4-1 in League One today.

The former Derry player, who featured for Stephen Kenny’s side during the international break, was instrumental in his side picking up three points, leaving them fourth in the table, three points off leaders Hull.

Elsewhere, on-loan Tottenham youngster Troy Parrott came off the bench to make his Championship debut for Millwall, though Neil Harris’ side had to settle for a 1-1 draw against Cardiff.

Also making a first appearance of the season after a long spell out injured was former Shamrock Rovers player Trevor Clarke, who came off the bench in Rotherham’s 1-0 loss to Swansea.

Meanwhile, after being frozen out of the squad under previous boss Garry Monk, Keiren Westwood made his long-awaited return for Sheffield Wednesday, after Tony Pulis opted to recall him. It was not enough to inspire a victory though, as the Owls were beaten 1-0 by Preston.
