Steve: "It's Those Little Errors That Have Cost Us All Season"

28 March 2016

Steve Davis gives us his post-match reaction following our Easter Monday defeat to Bradford.

He added: "I am an optimist and I always try to be positive. We won't be giving up and my mentality is not to keep up. It is going to be tough from the situation we find ourselves in, but we have to got to keep going. Anything is possible in the game and we have to keep believing we can go on a little run."

"Bradford dropped off in the second half and prevented us having space in those little pockets. That was a compliment to the way we played in that first half and we found it difficult to play through them as much in the second half.

"We couldn't produce the same level of performance in the second half as the first because we knew they would get in and re-adjust at half-time. They tried to press us in the first half but we played round them and played some good football. We just lacked that killer pass.

"That was the only difference on the day against a team in the top six and we end up not getting anything from a decent performance.

"There were some real positives from the game again but it has ended in disappointment because we have lost the game. It was another error and that has been the story of the season. We have been in games but those little errors have proved costly. George got the sun in his eyes and lost the flight of the ball and it allowed him to get in.

Following the narrow 1-0 defeat, Steve told the club's official web-site: "We played some really good football in the first half but we couldn't turn that possession into a goal or two. We didn't have too many chances but Lauri did have a good chance but snatched at it a bit and put it wide. We didn't force their goalkeeper (Ben Williams) into too many saves and that is what can happen in football. You have to get ahead when you are on top.

Crewe Alexandra boss Steve Davis was left disappointed as his side couldn't turn their periods of good possession against Bradford City into genuine chances. Crewe bossed much of the first half but didn't threaten Ben Williams' goal as much as we would have wanted over the 90 minutes and that came back to haunt us when Jamie Proctor got behind our back line in the 50th minutes to lash home the only goal of the game.
