Positives To Take Forward

17 August 2015

Steve Davis pleased with creativity of chances but knows there is room for improvement in both boxes.

Steve Davis has told the club’s official web-site that he was pleased with the number of clear-cut chances we managed to create at Scunthorpe United at the weekend, but he was left frustrated that those opportunities were not converted when we were on top in the game.

Although we conceded another early goal at Glanford Park, Crewe were very much in the game and created good chances for Brad Inman, Marcus Haber, Billy Bingham and Jon Guthrie but after failing to score, Paddy Madden grabbed a decisive second goal on 65 minutes.

Steve told “I went through the match again yesterday and we did some good things n the game and some things that were not good. We didn’t defend as well as I would have liked and we needed to be a lot more clinical in front of goal.

“There were some positives to take from the performance because the football was good and we created more chances away from home than we have done for a while. We had good chances, three of them were clear-cut, so it is important we find that cutting edge and take some of them to change the game.

“We have to be better without the ball and become harder to beat. We have to make it harder for them to get through because they had a lot of chances as well. It was a really open game and like I said afterwards it could have been 5-5.

 He added: “We will be working hard to put the things we need to improve on right, but the confidence is good in the dressing room. The players know what they have done well and what they have done so well on.”
