Jonah: "Win Too Long Overdue"

28 April 2016

James Jones says Crewe need to end a disappointing season with a win from our final two games.

Alex midfielder James Jones says it is vitally important that Crewe Alexandra get back to ‘winning ways’ before the end of the season. The Railwaymen have two matches left against Doncaster Rovers this weekend and Fleetwood Town on the final Sunday of the season to record their first win since early February.

Jones, 20, returned from a shoulder injury sustained in pre-season to make 31 appearances so far this season. He has surprisingly not scored and that is one area of his game he will need to improve on in League Two next season.

Ahead of this weekend’s final home game against Doncaster, Jones said: “I can’t explain it. It’s just a really tough time, but we’ve just got to pick ourselves up and try and get something from the last two games and try and get a bit of momentum to take into next season.

“It’s starting to feel like it’s a season where nothing will go for us. We’re giving it all we’ve got and we’re working hard in training and in games and it’s just frustrating when we actually perform quite well and feel like we deserve something from games, but it just doesn’t go our way. It felt that way again against Oldham last week.

“We’ve got to stay strong mentally. Being a professional footballer, it’s vital because of the season we’ve had and the results that we’ve had and that mental strength is key. We’ve got to try and turn this run around as soon as possible and get back to winning ways.

Jonah added: “No one wants to be a part of relegation, but it’s been vital experience for a young squad and myself included in that. It’s not where you want to be though. You’d rather gain experience for playing in a winning team, playing well week-in-week-out and not being in the position where we are.”
