We Can Rise To The Occasion

Steve looks forward to Capital One Cup challenge against Bolton

A defiant Steve Davis is hoping that a positive performance against Bolton Wanderers in the Capital One Cup second round can ignite our season. The Alex boss, his staff and players are still searching for that winning formula after just one win in our opening five games. That victory came in the previous round against Barnsley and Steve is hoping his players can rise to the occasion again at Gresty Road on Tuesday evening.

Ahead our meeting with Dougie Freedman’s side, Steve told “It is a game we can look forward to. Everyone has been disappointed by the start we have made to the new season but a positive performance and result against a Championship side could really give us a lift.

“I cannot fault the players for their effort. We have made a number of mistakes and we have to improve on that but the confidence and spirit is still there in the camp. The players have the character to bounce back and there would be no better place to do that in front of our own fans on Tuesday night.

“We know it is going to be tough because Bolton are a Championship club and it wasn’t so long ago that they were more than holding their own in the Premier League. They have lost some players along the way, but when you look at their squad they still have quality players. It will a good test for us.

 “Our players can rise to the occasion and if we can produce our performance at Barnsley then we should give them a good game.”
