Could Change Formation?

26 September 2013

Steve open to change to get advantage over opposition

Steve Davis has told the club’s official web-site that he is open to changing his side in order to get an advantage over our opponents. Crewe face bottom club Gillingham at the Alexandra Stadium this weekend looking to record a second win of the season and although the Railwaymen earned a well -deserved point at Oldham Athletic last weekend, the Alex boss could still be flexible with his formation.

He has Vadaine Oliver (dead leg) and Anthony Grant (sore back) back fit after slight injuries and Lee Molyneux has given the manager food for thought following his brace against Walsall in a reserve friendly on Monday.

Steve told “The Max (Clayton) and AJ (Leitch-Smith) partnership was good last weekend. They were linking up well and combining in and around the box, so that was promising for us.

“It has been indifferent as a partnership. Sometimes it has come off and sometimes it hasn’t. They have worked hard at that and I thought the movement was good from them, especially in the first half. They tired a bit in the second half but they were a threat.

“I don’t mind changing the system again. We have played 4-2-3-1 and then went to 4-4-2 and have played with the three back in the past as well. I don’t mind playing with the two up front as it occupies the centre-halves.

“You have to look at the opposition and what their strengths are and we select the team to try and get that slight advantage over them. That is the best way of doing things and if it means you have make changes then so be it.”
