Davis Keeps System Under Wraps

4 November 2015

Steve Davis says he may change his system and personnel for Eastleigh visit.

Steve Davis admits that changing his system to 4-4-2 helped us get a superb result against promotion favourites Sheffield United last weekend, but he has explained that he may alter his formation and personnel for a different type of game against Eastleigh this weekend. The Railwaymen host the in-form non-leaguers in the first round of the FA Cup aiming to progress in a competition that we have failed to make an impact in over the last few seasons.

Crewe have lost to non-league opposition in the past and fans will remember recent exits to Telford, York and Tamworth.

Ahead of this weekend’s home fixture, Steve told the club’s official web-site: “I chose to change the system on Saturday but that doesn’t necessary mean it is the answer. I will assess it again and could make change again.

“Just because we played 4-4-2 doesn’t necessary mean we will do it for the next game. We have played a number of different systems this season and it is beneficial to have flexibility. It is useful to have that in our locker and we can adapt and change in the middle of games, never mind game to game.

The boss added: “I think it is important to have that flexibility and our players are adaptable. Playing with that extra forward (Callum Saunders) allowed us to build up quicker and get bodies forward but we do have different ways of playing and we will look at it again to make sure we try and get an advantage against the opposition.”
