Boss says forward's bravery paid off with second decisive goal against Scunthorpe
Crewe Alexandra boss Steve Davis says that striker Marcus Haber got his reward with his back post header on Saturday after working hard on it in training during the week. Davis admits that he was onto the Canadian forward throughout the game to make sure he continued to get into the Scunthorpe box and Haber was in the correct place to head home James Jones’ sublime cross.
Steve told crewealex.net: “We had been working on getting Marcus at the far post during the week because that is where he is going to get his goals from.
“He is capable of holding the ball up and showing to feet but his main strength is getting onto the end of crosses like that.
“I had been shouting at him in the first half to be braver and to get in the box and on the end of things because we had put over some excellent deliveries.
He added: “To his credit he did that and was much better in the second half. He got over the defender to score his goal and it is always good to see that things you have worked on and spoken about paying off.”
