Boss wants his squad to challenge at the top end of League Two next season to restore some confidence.
Steve Davis says that dropping into League Two will help restore some lost confidence in some of his younger players. The Alex boss was hugely disappointed to lose our League One status after four years at this level but he believes that the step down may allow some of his young guns to develop quicker.
Following last season’s disappointment, the Alex boss told us: “We are disappointed to be going back into League Two but sometimes in football you have to take a hit. It is my ambition for the club to be in League One and being doing better than we have managed over the last three seasons.
“In a strange way, that step down my benefit some of the players that could especially be the case with the younger ones. It will be tough in League Two but the level will not be as good as they are used to in League One.
“They have come into a tough situation and not been used to winning games, so it will help them to have that experience to take into next season. They can quickly build some momentum and restore some lost confidence. It will help them.
The boss added: “We want to be challenging next season and come back as quickly as possible.”
