Harry: "Shut-Outs Will Prove Key"

13 March 2014

Defender knows that clean-sheets in the remaining ten games will be crucial

Crewe Alexandra defender Harry Davis admits that tightening up defensively in the remaining ten games of the season could well hold the key to our survival. With Chuks Aneke in exceptional form with eight goals in ten games since the turn of the year, Crewe are certainly creating and scoring goals and Davis is convinced that if we can continue to defend as we did at Walsall on Tuesday then we have every chance of a great escape.

by Mark Ellis preventing us from collecting all three points. The Alex rear guard certainly prevented the Saddlers from creating too many genuine chances until the last few minutes and there were plenty of positives to take from the performance, especially after conceding four goals just days earlier at Peterborough. Davis and the Alex back four were so unlucky not to get a clean-sheet at the Banks’s Stadium on Tuesday with only an unfortunate late own goal

Harry told the club’s official web-site: “Everyone knows that we need to get points on the board and we all feel that we haven’t perhaps got the points tally we deserved over the last two away games.

“We know we need wins and went for it in both games. We were in both games and should have won the Walsall game. We have that positive attitude that we will get the wins we need to stay up.

“Our philosophy is no different from last year, we go into every game looking to win it and get the three points. We never fear anyone and we have been in plenty of games against the top sides in this division.

“It is still tight and in our hands and we are confident we will get the points we need. As a team we know we have conceded too many goals. We have only got a handful of clean-sheets and we hold our hands up and will say that has not been good enough.

“We all know that and at the other end we have had too many blanks as well in games. We are all in this as a team and as a club and everyone is determined to make sure we are not in the bottom four at the end of the season.

He added: “There is no point just talking about it. We have to go out there and make it happen or it will go out of our hands and we cannot afford that to happen.”
