Seager Has Impressed With His Work Ethic

16 February 2016

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 “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.”
