Encourage Responsibility

19 March 2014

Steve Davis says he would like his players to be more decisive out on the pitch

Steve Davis has told the club’s official web-site that he is encouraging his players to take on more responsibility on the pitch. The Alex boss says although his team are young in terms of their ages, there is still a wealth of experience when you assess the number of games they have played and Davis wants those players to use that experience during that decisive run-in.

The Alex boss says he has an open mind of players taking on extra responsibility out on the pitch and alter things tactically if they feel it will make a difference. Steve was left frustrated after we failed to put a player on the near post from corners against Oldham, especially when George Evans’ deliveries were failing to get past the first man. Thankfully, his last one found the head of Harry Davis to salvage us a point.

Steve told “I have an open mind when it comes to the players taking on extra responsibility out on the pitch. I encourage it and they have enough experience to see those little things and change it. I don’t mind that. In fact I would encourage it.

“As long as they are not daft then they should take on that responsibility and become more accountable out on the pitch.

“For example, we hit three or four corners to the near post on Saturday and although we had been telling them throughout to put someone on the near post, they didn’t do it. Someone should see that themselves and make the change. They should see those situations and react.

  “It is those little details of perhaps doing something different that can make all the difference.”
