Boss says fans frustration can be taken as a positive
Steve Davis says his players are working hard out on the training ground to overcome recent set-backs against Hartlepool and Portsmouth. Two defeats has certainly hampered our chances of breaking into that top six and Steve Davis says the frustration of the supporters in the wake of the home defeat to Pompey shows how far we have come as a team.
Steve is looking for a positive response at Colchester on Saturday and admits that our goals against column has to improve after we uncharacteristically conceded 10 goals in our five outings.
The boss told crewealex.net: “We have had a couple of knocks lately with the results we have had but that can happen because we have been saying all season that this league is tough and there isn’t much between the teams, regardless of position.
“We have lost two games and it has hurt us as much as it has hurt the fans. I can understand their frustration and take that as a positive because it shows how long we have progressed as a club.
“The fans expect us to win every game and we set to win every game, but that isn’t possible. We are not Manchester United, we are Crewe. We are not good enough and this league has shown that any team can get a result on their day.
“We are going to have ups and downs, especially with younger players but the players have done really well this season and will push on and aim to finish as high as we can. No-one can question their effort or ambition.
“We have lost at home to Portsmouth and everyone was disappointed, but that is how far we have come that we all expect to beat Portsmouth, who despite their problems are still a big club.”
