Steve: "Delighted For Them."

5 April 2014

Boss gives us post-match reaction from West Sussex following 2-1 win.

Steve Davis says his side will fight until the end after another win on the road, this time at Crawley, gives our hopes of remaining in League One very much alive. Goals in each half from Uche Ikpeazu and Brad Inman gave Crewe the three points, although Jamie Proctor had fired Crawley level.

Steve told the club's official web-site: "We will keep fighting and just look after ourselves. If we can get our results then the rest will look after itself. We know what we have to do and not worry too much about the others. I thought we did okay today without being terrific. I thought we played better against Coventry and didn't get anything, but that is football. 

"We defended fine when we needed to and although we didn't create too much, we took our chances. The first one, Uche can do that. He did the same for one of his goals at Bradford when the goalkeeper didn't get it and it was the same today. He was on it in a flash to be there and he got his reward.

"I was delighted for Brad that he has come on and got his goal. He was left out simply because I didn't think he has done enough in the past few games. I chose to leave him out and I got the reaction I wanted. I knew not playing would hurt him and we thought that with his pace he could get in behind and it was a great pass and he did exactly what we wanted him to do.

"I thought he and Nolan did well. He is young, Liam, but came in and was steady and played well. His passing was relatively good and Byron came in and did his defending well and carried the ball up the pitch for us. 

He added: "We dug in when we needed to and it is a great three points. Now we welcome Wolves to our Stadium and it should be a great occasion. If we play like we can then we can beat anyone on our day and we will give it a real go."
