Steve says it is important we don't treat any of our new forwards as some 'sort of saviour'

 Crewe Alexandra boss Steve Davis says it is important not to consider his latest signing Lauri Dalla Valle as ‘some sort of saviour’.

Davis has worked hard over the last couple of weeks to bring in reinforcements in his forward line and has been able to add Dalle Valle, 23, on a permanent contract to go along with the loan signings of Uche Ikpeazu and Nicky Ajose.

He has also been able to bring in the Wycombe Wanderers defender Anthony Stewart on a short-term loan basis. That could be extended into a more permanent deal in January if he can impress.

Steve told the club’s official: “Lauri is not coming here as some sort of saviour and neither are the other two lads we have been able to bring in on loan. It is all about the group and them fitting into the team and doing as well they can.

“We have other forward players here, who when they are on form have a lot to offer as well. It is important we increased the competition and quality we had in the forward positions. We knew in pre-season that we were weak in that department of the squad and needed to bring in extra players and more quality.

“I’m glad we have been able to do that now and not left it too late. It gives us a chance and there is plenty of time to turn our season around.

“Having the three lads gives us plenty of options up there but that doesn’t mean we are writing any of our own off. We have Marcus, Callum, Brad, George, Billy and they have done well for us at times this season.

He added: “I have bought the players in to help us but also to help our own players as well. They will learn off each other and push each other on .”
