Davis: "We Cannot Let Standards Drop"

12 September 2016

Boss says if we want to remain in top six then the hard work must continue.

Crewe Alexandra extended their unbeaten record at home to four games this season thanks to a hard fought 2-0 win over a footballing Exeter City side at the weekend and the Alex boss says that the players have responded well following relegation to League Two last season.

The win took Crewe into the top 6, but Davis knows there is an awful long to go this season and he has encouraged his players to continue to play at high standard and to take our chances when we are on top in games.

The Crewe boss said: “We have made a decent start but we can improve and we will work hard to make sure we do.

“I do think that the players that were involved last season have responded well to the disappointment of being relegated. The additions have helped and that is why it was important to bring in three or four more experienced players.

"It is nice to see them get their rewards four putting the hard work in.

“They have shown that they are equipped for the league and look fine but they now have to try and pay above the level every week. They have to be better than their opponent and work hard. If they can do that and keep working hard on the training ground then it gives us hope to be in a good position at the end of the season.

 “If we let those standards drop then we will drop down the league. Football can change very quickly and it is as simple as that.”
