James: "We Want To Do Well in Every Game"

3 October 2016

First team coach James Collins says Crewe will be going all out to defeat Wolves in EFL Trophy.

James Collins has told the club’s official web-site that although boss Steve Davis is likely to make the permitted number of chances for the visit of Wolves in the EFL Trophy tomorrow evening, we still want to progress to the knockout stages of the competition with a home win.

Crewe’s comfortable 3-0 win over Accrington Stanley in our first Group B game has set us up nicely with two games still to play and Collins says that although the newly named Checkatrade Trophy has come in for some criticism, it is still a worthy competition for lower league clubs.

Ahead of our home tie against Wolves, Collins said: “We want to do as well as we can in every competition we enter. The competition has divided opinion with the Development Squads being invited to play in it. Some say that it has divided the competition but I know that if we were to play Everton in the semi-final at Goodison then the lads would want to play in that. That would be a great experience and they would enjoy playing there.

“We want to play well and progress. We are in a good position after the win at Accrington and if we can win tomorrow then we would be in the knockout stages.

“I don’t think we will make dramatic changes. I’m sure there will be a few changes because we need to give one or two a go, but we will look to strike a balance and try and get through to the next phase. “
