Ready For Crawley Test

3 April 2014

Crewe boss targets another top away performance

Crewe Alexandra manager Steve Davis says it will be a tough encounter against John Gregory’s Crawley this weekend, especially if the Broadfield playing surface is struggling. Crawley have a number of games in hand following five successive home games postponed. At that time back in mid-February, Gregory’s side were one point above the relegation zone but some promising form has them as a potential outsider for a play-off place.

Ahead of our trip to West Sussex, Steve Davis said: “Crawley still have a number of games left and could still make a late surge for the play-offs.

“We know that their pitch struggled over the winter and that it probably won’t be in the best of conditions but we have to put that type of thing to the back of our minds and go there and do as well as we can.

“We had some great support at Gillingham and we have a good following in the south of the country, so we hope they will come and swell the numbers in the away end. The away fans have been great and have really got behind us at Walsall, Port Vale and at Gillingham and hopefully they will come in their numbers and get us going again.

He added: “They have been in good voice and it is up to us to make sure that continues with another good performance.”
