Davis says he would be 'a disappointed man' if we don't get 8,000 for semi-final
Steve Davis, the Crewe Alexandra manager says ‘he would be disappointed’ if Wednesday’s 2nd leg in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy fails to attract a bigger gate than the play-off semi-final against Southend United back in May.
With Coventry City quickly selling out of their away allocation, Davis is hoping the Crewe supporters will come out in their numbers to get behind their team in the second leg. Crewe lead 3-0 from the first leg, but Davis says that his players will need a noisy crowd behind them to help us get over the line and a possible return to Wembley Stadium. The two clubs have agreed a reduced price of £10, £6 for concessions and £2 for juniors for Wednesday's clash (kick off 7.30pm)
Steve told the club’s official web-site: “It should be another exciting night for the supporters and I would encourage the fans to come down to the Stadium and get behind us because we will need them. Coventry will come to our place and have a real go, so we need our fans behind us, helping us.
“They were terrific at Coventry and have been all season, but we need more of them down here on Wednesday. Coventry have completely sold out of their allocation and that doesn’t happen very often, so we know they are going to be making some noise. We have to match that.
“There was a great atmosphere at Coventry for the first leg and they generated a lot of noise. Of course, we won’t have that number but we want to fill the stadium as much as possible to rival their fans.
He added: “I would be disappointed if we don’t have around 6,000 of our own fans for a game and occasion like this. We want to give our fans something to celebrate and everyone is looking forward to it, so hopefully they will come and get their tickets.”
