5 November 2012

Steve Davis happy with home draw in the second round of the FA Cup

Steve Davis, the Crewe Alexandra manager says he is pleased with another home draw in the FA Cup after the Railwaymen were paired with either Burton or Altrincham in round two. Those clubs will need a replay after drawing 3-3 on Sunday with the winners arriving in South Cheshire on the weekend of 1st December.

Steve told the club’s official web-site: “I watched the draw at home with the family and we came out of the hat fairly early. I was pleased we came out first meaning we have another home draw and can play in front of our own supporters. That always helps.

“It is something we can look forward to and I am not really bothered who we face. We will be ready for it and it will be tough whoever wins the replay. We will have the opportunity to go and watch the replay and whoever we get will be fairly local, so hopefully it will be a well- attended.

“You never know in the FA Cup and there are always upsets. That is what makes it great and we just have to make sure we approach it right to make sure we get into the third round. Our focus is on the league until we have that cup game and it will be a tough challenge because anything can happen on the day.”
