Steve Davis convinced that on-loan Saint will show his sharpness in finishing during loan spell.
Steve Davis is hoping that on-loan striker Ryan Seager can get on the score sheet as quickly as possible. The recently turned 20-year-old has certainly won the acclaim of the Crewe fans with his hard working displays since signing on a one month youth loan move from Southampton. Seager has struck up a good partnership with the taller Marcus Haber but his genuine goalscoring chances have been few and far between in his three appearances so far.
He did show a flash of his goalscoring instinct when getting on the end of a near post cross from Jon Guthrie on Saturday but the Walsall keeper Neil Etheridge made a smart save to deny him his first Crewe goal.
Steve told crewealex.net: “Ryan has been fine for us. He works hard for the team and you can see that the supporters really appreciate that.
“He is a goalscorer but you always have to remember that League One football is different to the Under-21s. He is still adjusting to the level.
“He hasn’t had that real genuine chance fall for him yet. He had a fine near post header against Walsall and forced their keeper into a save but he made that himself with his movement.
“I would like to see Ryan get that chance inside the box, to see how he would handle it. He is a great finisher in training, he is very composed and when he gets in the positions you expect him to score. He is calm and I am sure we would see that in a game situation.
He added: “I have been pleased with his contribution and I’m sure he will show the fans more of his qualities whilst he is here.”
