Tough Calls To Make

4 November 2013

Davis explains decision making on changes

Steve Davis has told the club’s official web-site that he had some tough decisions to make when it came to selecting his side on Saturday. The Alex boss made six changes to his side with a couple enforced but he had big decisions to make concerning his goalkeeper and centre-half.

The Crewe manager went with Alan Martin and the fit-again Harry Davis instead of the relatively inexperienced Ben Garratt and George Ray. The decision paid off with Crewe keeping a clean-sheet to claim a point against Bradford City.

Steve told “I thought it was better from us and we were harder to beat. I had some tough decisions to make in terms of the selection. Two were enforced on us and of course it Toots (Matt Tootle) had been fit then he would have played.

“It was a difficult decision over the goalkeeper because Ben (Garratt) has been training really well and it was a tough call between them.

“George (Ray) also defended reasonably well at Sheffield apart from the two set pieces, but I just thought Harry would come in and be steady for us. Harry has been out for a month and it would have seemed like a year to him. I thought he was excellent and make good decisions though out the game.”
