Boss wants that level of performance for remaining six matches
Steve Davis says that if his team can re-produce the level of performance shown against Coventry City during the remaining six games of the season, then his Crewe Alexandra side have a fighting chance of remaining in League One. Crewe slipped to an eighth home defeat of the season, mainly thanks to the clinical finishing of Callum Wilson, but Davis remains confident that his side can gain enough points in the remaining six games to guarantee safety.
The Crewe boss has been saying for a while that he believes the season will go right up to the final day for a few clubs. It remains awfully tight at the bottom with Crewe hoping to get something on their travels this weekend, with John Gregory’s Crawley lying in wait.
Steve told crewealex.net: “I don’t usually look at the table but I had a glance at it at the weekend. It is still very tight, as I thought it would be. There are four teams on 40 points and a couple who are a few points above that, so there will be plenty of twists yet.
“We are keeping positive and the key will be how we bounce back to the two home defeats. It is still very tight down there and if we can we can emulate the Coventry performance next week then we have every chance of getting a result.
“There are six games left and it will be close. I’ve said for a while now that I think it will go to the final game of the season and I still believe that. After our first half of the season I think we would have taken that position.”
