No More Loans Just Yet

13 September 2012

Bakes says the Alex won't be bringing somebody in at the moment.

Crewe Alexandra assistant manager Neil Baker has exclusively told Crewe Alex Player that club have resisted the temptation to move back in to the loan market this week.

Following a serious injury to Manchester City loanee Harry Bunn in Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Tranmere, it had been thought that the Alex managerial team would look to strengthen their squad ahead of the trip to Stevenage on Saturday.

But an impressive 8-0 win for a youthful second-string side in a behind closed doors friendly with Blackpool has persuaded boss Steve Davis against adding to his squad, although ‘Bakes’ says the Alex do have options should they need to add to their squad.

Baker told Player: “We could have got somebody in this week. It is a lot easier to bring players in to this league because the clubs are a lot more accommodating. We have had opportunities to bring players in, both in midfield and further forward, but we want to go with our own at the moment and then if we feel we need to act we have one or two we can go for.

“But at the moment we have one or two players that need to play games and show what they can do. The reserves had a good win in midweek and whenever the players play in those sort of games there is motivation for doing well.

“For most of them they are around our first-team and if they can do well in those sorts of games, then they can show Steve that they are ready for the first-team.”
