Chuks on why he is wants to be a key player in the second half of the season
The on-loan Arsenal youngster Chuks Aneke is hopeful that his recent winning goal against Crawley Town will act as the spur he needs to play more of an influential role in Crewe’s second half of the season.
Aneke came on in difficult circumstances against Crawley to stoop and head home a cross from Matt Tootle, to give ten men Crewe a vital three points. Aneke is the first to admit that he is yet to hit the heights of last season and his winning goal against Crawley was actually his first in League One this season, with his other two strikes coming in cup competitions.
Chuks told the club’s official web-site: “It was really good to get the three points against Crawley. We hadn’t won a game for a while, so we were desperate to win and I was just grateful that the gaffer gave me a chance and I managed to score the winning goal for the team.
“I have been disappointed with my goal tally this season. I know I should have converted more than I have but that is in the past and I have got to look forward.
“I just want to get back on the pitch, become influential and help the team move up the table. If I’m honest I have not been at my best this season and there is a lot more to come from me and from this team.”
