Boss relieved to get that first win of the campaign and now wants his side to push on
Steve Davis has admitted to the club’s official web-site that it was a 'feeling of relief' to register that first win of the season but he has stressed that nothing has changed when it comes to the hard work out on the training. The Alex boss was delighted with the way we defended our early lead at Shrewsbury Town but he admits that there was still room for improvement when we were in possession.
Crewe won their first game of the season thanks to Adam King’s fourth goal of the season at the Greenhous Meadow.
The Crewe boss told crewealex.net: “It was a feeling of relief that we had that first win and it was important to get that first one out of the way. We had it hanging over our heads and I would have much preferred to have got in the opening game or the one after that but it didn’t happen for us like that.
“We had been saying for several weeks that we felt we were not far off and then we arguably produced our worst performance of the season to get it. That is football and it is strange how things can go.
“There is certainly room for improvement when you look at us in possession but the defending was very good. It was like the penny had dropped and they rolled their sleeves up to make sure we defended our lead.
“There were some great signs in the way we defended as a unit. The early goal gave us something to hold onto and they did that superbly well.
“Now it is a case of trying to get those two parts together to make it a better performance and result. If we can unify the defending with being better in possession then we would be in much better shape. “
