Davis: "Gap Cannot Get Too Much Wider"

11 January 2016

Club captain says it is time to start clawing some points back on those teams above us.

Club Captain Harry Davis is hoping to be back in full time training at the end of the month after missing a large chunk of the season with a knee injury and the experienced defender is eager to play his part in our survival bid. Davis has been as frustrated as anyone as he watched us slip back to the bottom of the League One table over the Christmas period but the 24-year-old stresses that there is enough quality in the Alex dressing room to turn things around.

The Crewe skipper, who has helped us escape the drop over the last two seasons, appreciates that the points gap at the bottom cannot get too much wider and he hopes his team-mates can claw some points back on those above us by getting a positive result at Swindon this weekend. 

Ahead of this weekend’s trip to the County Ground, Davis said: “We weren’t good enough against Coventry. We were miles off it first half and they’re a good side, if you give them too much respect then they’re going to punish you.

“Hopefully we can put that behind us quickly and look forward to Swindon. If we can get three points there then that will help to bring some confidence back.

“A few weeks ago we looked like we might turn a bit of a corner, but we’ve now had a couple of defeats and the Swindon game is vital after a bit of a break. There’s a lot of things we need to improve on and then take it from there. I think if we start picking up some wins then that will stand us in good stead.

“The gap can’t get any bigger than this really, we’ve got to start making up some ground really quickly, because games are running out now. We need to put that to the back of our minds for next Saturday and start again at Swindon where three points would be great.

Harry added: ”It’s all little margins but I feel we’ve still got enough in the dressing room together to turn it around.”
