Boss says last two away games will be a learning curve for his young players
Steve Davis says that his young squad could not have failed to have learned from the experience of facing the top two teams in Sky Bet League One in a short space of time. Crewe were on the receiving end of two away defeats to Preston North End and Bristol City and the Crewe boss says that his promising players such as Ollie Turton, George Ray and James Jones would only have gained invaluable experience of facing quality players.
The Alex boss told crewealex.net: “I’ve told the players that this is the level they have to aspire to. This is where their ambition should be striving towards.
“Facing players of this quality should be an invaluable experience for them. These are the games they should want as players, to really test themselves against quality players. You want to challenge yourself and not have things too easy. This is why we are determined to stay in this league.
“It has been a big learning curve for them over the last two games and they will learn some lessons from it. They have struggled a bit but I was pleased that even when they were finding it hard, they still worked as hard as they could and tried to be brave on the ball.
He added: “That is you can ask as a manager. They will be fine. They are a resilient group and have proved that already this season by bouncing back from heavy defeats.
