Striker admits to fatigue after his man-of-the-match display
Marcus Haber was honest enough to admit that he was fatigued before he was substituted after 74 minutes of Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Walsall. The Canadian International scored the opening goal of the game and put in a man-of-the-match display, but he admitted afterwards that he had ‘nothing left to give’.
A rather unfortunate deflected shot from Tom Bradshaw ended up costing Crewe three points, but in fairness the visitors deserved a share of the spoils after their own improvement in the second half.
Marcus told Crewe Alex Player: “Everyone was frustrated and disappointed afterwards mainly because we didn’t play as well in the second half as he did in the first half. We were a different team and I’m not sure why that was.
“We were not the same team in the second half and that has happened a few times recently, but we are a resilient team and we know what we have to do in the last two games. We are not in the relegation zone and our aim is to make sure that continues.
“I felt fatigued after the 75 minutes I gave. I hold my hands up, I had given everything I had.
He added: “I couldn’t give any more and if that means I have to improve my fitness levels for next season then so be it, but I couldn’t have given any more.”
