Crewe Alexandra’s assistant manager Kenny Lunt says the coaching staff have been relatively pleased with the club’s defensive record this season. The Railwaymen have not conceded two goals in a game in the EFL this season and Lunt says that if the goals-against-column continues to be reasonable then we have every chance of having a successful campaign.
Ahead of the visit of Cambridge United at Gresty Road this evening, Lunt said: “We have been reasonably pleased with the defending. We are defending well as a unit and although we have conceded goals this season, we are conceding less than last season.
“The players and staff have put a lot of work into that and long may it continue. Every team concedes goals at some point but I think we have one of the best defensive records in the league at the moment and it’s been a while since we have been able to say that.
“We have to keep that going and if we can get more clean-sheets then we know we have a great chance in every game because of the players we have on the pitch, or the ones we can call on from the bench.
Kenny added: “We know we have goals in this team and if we can get that balance right then we will have a good season.”
