This Team Has Grown

Boss praises the reslient improvement in his Crewe side

Steve Davis was delighted that his Crewe Alexandra side came from a goal down at half-time to win 3-2 at Colchester United on Saturday. It was the first time this season that the Railwaymen have come from behind to win a league game and Davis says that they will carry that belief into the remaining games of the season.

The Alex boss was pleased with the resilience shown by his team as second half goals from James Jones, Nicky Ajose and Anthony Grant sealed another win in Essex.

The Alex boss told “The team has grown together this season and will continue to grow. We have had heavy defeats in this league before and I think we have learnt from that. Brentford used to batter us and we have had the same from the MK Dons this season.

“We have had to expect that every now and again in this League because every now and again  a top team can beat us heavily. We have to be realistic and think that is where we are.

“On some occasions we have shown that we can compete and beat the best teams in the League, like we did against Bristol City and at other times we can be the receiving end of a heavy loss.

“What we have learnt to do is not let it affect us too much. You have to put it behind you and more forward positively.

The boss added: “I watched the Football League show on Saturday night and they were on about us being more resilient and I thought they were bang right. We have become harder to beat in the second half of the season and we have to continue improving.

“What Saturday did was show that when we go a goal behind, we have enough quality to get back into the game and go on and win it.”
