Steve says signs are there of recovery
Crewe Alexandra boss Steve Davis feels he can see the confidence returning to the Alex dressing room and he admits that it has come at a crucial time with the busy festive period coming up. The Christmas and New Year Period gives all clubs a chance to collect a lot of points in a short space of time and Davis is targeting enough points to get out of the bottom four going into 2014.
Crewe build on a superb 1-0 win over Crawley with ten men, to record a deserved 2-2 draw with Coventry in Northampton last weekend.
