Remaining Positive

29 September 2014

Boss determined to turn things around as a collective unit

After re-evaluating the DVD of Saturday’s home defeat to Colchester United, boss Steve Davis has reiterated that he was pleased with aspects of our overall performance. A mad 10-minute spell saw Colchester score three second half goals and condemn Crewe to their seventh defeat of the season but until Freddie Sears had fired the U’s into the lead, the Railwaymen were conjuring up the better of the chances.

Now the Alex have the perfect chance to put that result behind them by getting something against Notts County at home on Tuesday night.

Steve said ahead of the Magpies visit to Gresty Road: “We don’t have too much time to dwell on the Colchester result because we have another game quickly upon us.

“We have gone through the DVD from the Colchester game and I’ve watched it again over the weekend. As I thought after the game, I thought we were decent and there were some decent performances, especially in the first half and at the beginning of the second half.

“Sometimes the result can mask the overall performance. There were some positives to take from the performance but things haven’t gone for us. If we had taken one or two of our chances before they scored, the game would have headed in a different direction. It was those fine margins again.

“That ten minute spell cost us because up to the goals I thought we played well. The goals knocked the confidence and showed our vulnerability at the moment and that was frustrating because we were in the game.

He added: “We have got to stick to together as a collective and believe in what we are doing. We can only turn this around as a collective and we have to front up to the situation. We have to be men and remain strong and we do that then we will be okay.”
