Oil leak after new clutch

Hi all
fitted a new clutch to a 156 1.9jtd
while i was there i thought that id change the crank oil seal. seem to fit nicely.
when i removed the old one it was stuck in along the bottom with what i thought to be excess silicone from the sump.
so i just removed it and broke the silicone. now after the test drive i've got a significant oil leak from that area and most of its
dripping off the rear corner sump bolt.

so does anyone know where its likely to be coming from or could give me some tips? its either the sump with the broken silicone or the crank oil seal. i'm hoping i can drop the sump and put a new silicone around it rather than take everything off again.

i did start it before moving it and it didnt seem to leak then when idling before being moved.
