Hunt: "Relief To Get Winning Again"

4 October 2018

Experienced defender Nicky Hunt says that our mid-week victory over Swindon Town came as a 'relief'.

Crewe Alexandra got back to winning ways with a hard fought 1-0 win over Phil Brown’s side thanks to a deflected effort from Charlie Kirk in the first half and with most of the bottom placed clubs also winning on Tuesday evening, it has left it almighty tight at the bottom of League Two.

Of course, there are still an awful lot of points still be play for but veteran Hunt, 35, says it was important to get back to winning ways after four games without a win in all competitions.

Hunt was arguably Crewe’s top performer on the night after being drafted in at the last minute at centre-half following an ankle injury to Perry Ng.

Speaking to the iFollow the Alex after the 1-0 win, Hunt said: "To win was more of a relief than anything.

"We came into this game, truth be told, a bit worried. Results have not been going our way, we've played well in halves but we needed to get a 90 minutes.

"We all felt we were unlucky on Saturday so we needed to put it right, and we showed what we can do.

"It gets rid of the fear factor.

"The last thing you want it to get three or four bad results, and the team gets a bit dejected. The fans get dejected and it can have a big affect on us all.

"So this was massive for us. The gaffer told us if we matched their work rate our quality would shine through and it did.

"From pre-season, as a set of lads we know what we can achieve and how we can play.

Nicky added: "Everything just clicked, as it has at home really. We've only conceded one goal this season in the league, we pride ourselves on our clean sheets."
