Adam King says that Preston performance has only enchance the confidence in the group.
Young loanee Adam King says that confidence remains extremely high in the Crewe Alexandra dressing room despite our exit from the Capital One Cup to Preston in mid-week. Crewe certainly gave a good account of themselves against our Championship opponents with King’s first senior goal on 36th minutes halving our deficit for the second half. Crewe were very much in the tie until Josh Brownhill sealed the result for Simon Grayson’s side in the final few minutes.
The on-loan Swansea midfielder himself responded well from an indifferent debut against Port Vale on the opening day of the season to claim the sponsors Man-of-the-Match award.
The Scottish Youth International is now hoping that Crewe can take that level of performance into this weekend’s trip to Scunthorpe.
King told the club’s official web-site: “I thought we gave a good account of ourselves against Preston on Wednesday and it was good to test ourselves against a club that are now in the Championship after winning promotion last season.
“We can take some real positives from the performance and go on from there. We made things difficult with the start we made but I thought we responded well and played well in the second half.
“Our aim now is to try and get three points at Scunthorpe. The dressing room is really positive and it is a good environment to work in. The lads are feeling good and have worked hard in training this week.
He added: “We know we can improve on things but we are a relatively new team and some of us are still finding their feet, and that includes. I found the first game tough. It was a derby game and it takes a bit of time to adjust to the physical side and pace of the senior game. I thought I improved on Wednesday and will look to push on and keep improving.”
