Boss pleased by Inman's display in the Cheshire Senior Cup
Brad Inman’s mid-week performance against Witton Albion in the Cheshire Senior Cup has ‘done him no harm’ according to boss Steve Davis. Inman helped a mixed Crewe Alexandra side progress in the competition thanks to a deserved 2-1 win over a spirited Witton side. He was involved in the creation of the opening goal when his clever pass released Billy Waters into the Witton penalty area and allowed him to cut the ball back for the supportive Oliver Turton to slot home.
Callum Saunders added a second goal before Witton set up an edgy last few minutes with a goal from our former player Michael Koral with seven minutes left.
Inman was certainly one of Crewe’s most influential and creative players on Wednesday evening and watching boss Steve Davis was pleased with his overall contribution. Now the talented Inman will be hoping he has done enough to win a place in the manager’s 18-man squad for the visit of Coventry this weekend.
Steve told crewealex.net: “Brad was good the other night. It is hard to really judge those games because of what it means to the opposition players. They fly about and get people behind the ball and it makes things difficult.
“I thought Brad kept himself going. He played on the wing, right up there and as a number 10 and he was trying to get on the ball as much as he could and influence the game.
“I thought he was a level above and his performance would have done him some good. He was a creative threat to them and that is what I have been looking for. I will now decide if he is involved this weekend but I was pleased with his performance and attitude against Witton.”
