Steve: "We Had To Work Hard For That Today"

10 September 2016

Alex boss gives us his post match reaction following home win.

"I thought some of them looked lethargic today and were tiring and we will look to address that but they all worked hard and that is why we have the points today."

"Daggers then produced a similar type of ball for Danny's goal. It is all about the quality you have in those situations. I thought he had missed his chance but he produced a great little touch to take it past the goalkeeper. I didn't think he had the energy or the legs to get there but he did and we are delighted that he has managed to get his first goal for the club.

"It was a perfect ball from George Cooper and Alex showed great composure in that situation. He has been scoring goals this season and that has given him great confidence. You can see that and it was a calm finish from him.

"Daggers put one wide after rounding the goalkeeper and he has hit the crossbar as well with a great shot. It wasn't easy for us but we have come through and I was pleased with the goals we scored today. The movement from the forwards was excellent and we have done a lot of work on that with those type of through balls and getting them to run in behind.

"They had good periods of possession but we had some great chances today. I thought we had some good patterns of play and looked dangerous.

The win puts Crewe into the top six and Davis is pleased that our hard work paid off with another win this afternoon: "It was a tough game for us today and we had to work really hard to get the three points. Exeter were a positive side and were always keen to get four or five in the box. They do gamble a bit with that and leave some gaps and I thought that we were a threat.

Steve Davis was pleased with another three points as goals from Alex Kiwomya and Danny Hollands saw off Exeter City at Gresty Road. It was a hard fought win for the Alex with Exeter enjoying good periods of possession throughout. Crewe were always a threat in the final third though with Chris Dagnall hitting the woodwork and also going close after rounding Exeter City goalkeeper Bobby Olejnik but he couldn't steer his shot into the empty net.
