Davis Disappointed By Prenton Performance
Steve Davis admits that it was hard to explain why Crewe produced a below par performance at Prenton Park at the weekend. The Alex never really hit the heights of recent performances, with the game decided by a first half corner.
Matthew Pennington headed home the only goal of the game and although the Alex dominated much of the possession in the second period, we couldn’t quite create real genuine chances to secure a point.
Davis was bitterly disappointed that he couldn’t take our recent good form into such an important clash at Tranmere.
Steve Davis told the club’s official web-site: “It was very disappointing because we didn’t get anywhere near the level we have been playing at, especially in the first half.
“I was disappointed because we had gone into the game in good form. We have been playing well and I have been relatively pleased but we didn’t perform in the first half. We had a go in the second half but didn’t build enough momentum to get something from it.
“We didn’t show that real quality and didn’t create enough chances. I just felt we lacked that energy and although I cannot fault their effort, we lacked a bit of quality. We just couldn’t break them down and I expected more from the players.”
