Steve Davis says Haber up for the challenge
Steve Davis believes that the extreme travelling that his striker Marcus Haber had to endure with Canada over the last couple of months did result in some fatigue.
To his enormous credit, Haber returned from an International match in Panama City to travel to London on the morning of the match to take his place on the substitutes’ bench against Leyton Orient. Haber was a late call-up to the Crewe Alexandra squad after the then on-loan Febian Brandy suffered a calf strain in the final training session on the Friday.
Steve has praised the former Stevenage striker for the work he has put in over the last couple of weeks as he fights for his place in the starting XI following the arrival of three extra forwards.
The Alex boss told the club’s official web-site: “Marcus has worked really hard to get back to where he was.
“I do think that being away with Canada did affect him. There is a lot of traveling and training involved in that and it did take its toll on him.
The boss added: “There has been an element of fatigue and he hasn’t been as fit as he would have liked but he has worked hard to put that right. He is looking to set-up and challenge for a place and that is all I can ask.”
