Steve: "We Needed A Goal To Change It"

15 August 2015

Steve Davis gives us his reaction following loss at Glanford Park.



"I thought our creativity was good and we got into at least three one-on-one situations. We deserved a goal today, I'm not saying we deserved to win but our play deserved something for it."

"That is what football is all about, it is about what you produce in both penalty areas. I said to them afterwards, who is going to step up and score those goals we will need? We created enough chances today, and as the away side that was pleasing but you have to take them at important moments of the game.

"We needed to take some of those chances and that is what was frustrating because they were good chances. Getting a goal could have changed the whole complexion of it. It would have put some pressure on them as the home side if we had managed to get one but we were not clinical enough and that was the difference. They had Madden, who was clinical in his finishing.

"We then didn't show that composure in our finishing. I thought our football was good and although they had their moments as well, because the way we play we do give the opposition some chances, I thought we were brave on the ball and had five or six great chances. If they had taken their chances as well it really could have been 5-5.

Following the 2-0 defeat, Steve told the official web-site: "We conceded a fairly early goal again and we have been doing that. We did that against Preston in mid-week and we didn't start particularly well here. We were a bit wobbly in our defending at the start of the game and I was disappointed with some of our defending today, especially in the early stages.

Crewe Alexandra boss Steve Davis gave Crewealex.net his post match reaction from Glanford Park, as a goal in each half from the clinical Paddy Madden sealed the points for Scunthorpe. Crewe were left to rue some missed chances though where if we had been able to convert one or two of them then it could have changed the complexion of the game.
