The Lads Will Learn

Steve says players would have learnt a lot from Millers late comeback

Steve Davis says his Crewe Alexandra side will quickly learn from Saturday’s late set-back against Rotherham United. The Crewe Alexandra boss was pleased with the way his side played for at least 75 minutes on the opening day of the season. Leading 3-1 thanks to goals from Anthony Grant, Max Clayton and a penalty from Harry Davis, Crewe looked like to be heading towards three points before a spirited comeback from the Millers.

Following a pulsating 3-3 draw, the Crewe boss told the club’s official web-site: “I was relatively pleased with the way we played for 75, 80 minutes on Saturday. It was just that he had to deal with the set-plays and long throws better than we did.

“We tried to adapt to that by putting bigger players onto the pitch but we could have been better organised. The goals were disappointing to concede but there were positives to take from the game, especially from the way we played in the first half.

“We will have to learn from that and we will go over things and look at that. I am glad we have got the first game out of the way now. You can either do too much planning too much for it or not doing enough. It is a tough one to get the balance right for.

He added: “I was pretty pleased with the performance but some of them tired towards the end of the game and we will assess those players and see if they can go again at Bury.”
