Steve: "We Did Some Good Things And Some Bad Things"

15 July 2016

Steve Davis gives us his verdict after home friendly defeat to Wolves.


"H has been out a long time but he got 45 minutes and it was tough for him. He needs a bit of time and the communication could have been better with Ben for the first goal. He just needs more game time and it will come with him. It was intense game and they would have got a lot out of it."

"I threw Liam in to see what he was like. We haven't had time to really work with him. It is sometimes the best policy to just throe them into the cauldron and he did some good things and bad things and we will do some work with him on the training pitch. He has got some quality.

"We are all working towards the first game and it was a good experience for some of the young lads to play here and in front of a decent crowd. We worked with a 4-4-2 and it gets them used to defending but we will look at another system. Saying that we want Dagnall and Lowe up there. They combine well throughout the game. They worked hard and Ryan had a tooth out yesterday and had some stitches but he wanted to play 45 minutes.

"It was good to be on our own pitch and we have made a couple of mistakes for their goals. We didn't open them up as much as we would have liked but we had some good opportunities when we did get in behind them and some decisions didn't go our way with a couple of tight offsides as well.

After the 2-0 defeat to the Championship side, Steve told the club's official web-site: "It was another good run out for us and everyone came through unscathed which is the main thing. They would have all benefited from getting some more game time. I thought it was a good friendly, a tough game for a friendly. At this stage it is all about giving them time on the pitch.

Steve Davis says it was another beneficial run-out for his Crewe Alexandra side against Championship Wolverhampton Wanderers this evening. Crewe may have slipped to a 2-0 defeat but the result is never the number one priority in pre-season. Crewe showed some glimpses of promise, especially in the early exchanges but we also had Ben Garratt to thank for keeping us in the contest during the first half. The Crewe goalkeeper made three outstanding saves to make sure we only went in at the break 1-0 goal behind.
