Crying Out For Coco's Skill

Boss says Crewe lacking Colclough's skill in the final third

Steve Davis says his Crewe Alexandra side are crying out for some creativity and individual brilliance to get the club back to winning ways. The Railwaymen ended up losing 3-0 to Walsall on Saturday in a match that looked like it was heading towards a fairly uneventful goalless draw. Craig Westcarr scored the all-important first goal and Crewe collapsed to a first home defeat of the season.

Davis was understandably disappointed to concede the goals we did, but was also frustrated with our lack of creativity going forward. Only AJ Leitch-Smith in poking one just wide and substitute Anthony Grant registered decent efforts on the Walsall goal during the 90 minutes.

The Alex boss told “We didn’t look too much of a threat going forward. Vadaine (Oliver) did his best in the air but we were carrying too many on Saturday. They didn’t get into the game enough and there was no real quality or composure going forward.

“There was none of that real skill or individual brilliance you need to open a defence up. There was nothing of what Ryan (Colclough) can do or what Powelly did for us in the past. That is missing from our forward play at the moment and we have to be better in the final third.”
