Steve Davis says his attack can pose a threat with three big points up for grabs
Despite suffering the blow of losing Uche Ikpeazu to Doncaster Rovers during the final transfer window, a confident Crewe Alexandra boss believes that he has enough of an attacking threat to acquire all three points at Colchester this weekend.
The Alex travel to Essex looking to win their sixth consecutive away game against Colchester United and Davis feels that he has enough striking talent to be a threat on the road again. Crewe won their last away game at rivals Port Vale thanks to a winning goal from Nicky Ajose.
Steve has a selection to make with the likes of young George Cooper, Lauri Dalle Valle, a fit again Bradden Inman and Marcus Haber all vying to partner leading scorer Ajose against the U’s.
Ahead of the trip south, Steve told the club’s official web-site: “I have been pleased with the fact that we have looked dangerous away from home in recent weeks. We created a number of chances at Port Vale and won the game. I was also pleased with the number of the chances we created at Scunthorpe and Notts County as well, even though we ended up losing those games.
“We have looked better on the road and if we can create a number of decent chances and we have the players here who can take one or two of them then we have every chance of getting something from games.
“We have been creating a lot more chances and although we have lost Uche, we still have enough quality to be dangerous.
He added: “If we can take one or two of those chances then we have to be harder to beat at the other end of the pitch. We have been better in that department as well, although we didn’t defend very well against the MK Dons.”
