On-loan Ikpeazu wants to fire Crewe to a safety spot
. Uche Ikpeazu remains confident that he can score the goals to make sure Crewe Alexandra are safe at the end of the season. The on-loan Watford striker started his Crewe career with a superb brace away at Bradford City on his professional debut but he has failed to get on the score-sheet in his seven other appearances
That is not to say his contribution has not been first class. He was certainly a powerful nuisance to the Coventry City defence on Saturday, having a superb solo effort cleared from the line and not been awarded a penalty when his shirt was clearly pulled in the first half of our 2-1 defeat.
Although he didn’t get on the scoresheet himself, the 19-year-old was also a real handful away at Gillingham, having a hand in two of our three goals at the Priestfield Stadium.
The former Reading youngster told crewealex.net: “We want to get over the Coventry game as quickly as possible and if we can go to Crawley and get the three points then that would give everyone a massive lift.
“We have lost two on the bounce at home and that hurts. All we can do now is look forward and I want to help this team. I don’t want Crewe Alexandra to go down, it wouldn’t be nice for the club or for me personally.
“Everything in football is an experience but this isn’t a particularly nice one to be going through but I came here to score and create goals and I’m here to help.
Uche added: “I am a striker and strikers are judged on goals or assists, so I want to score goals and get us going. We will have to dig in as a team and have that bit of luck go in our favour because it certainly didn’t go for us against Coventry.”
