Alex Morris believes that the competition in League Two will be even tougher next season with the likes of Scunthorpe, Plymouth and Walsall coming down and the likes of Leyton Orient and Salford going up.
Crewe will be aiming to better their final finish of 12th and push on for a place in the top seven. Morris says that Crewe will have to become even more consistent to become real contenders, especially away from home.
The first team coach told crewealex.net: “We think it’s going to be a tougher league next year. You can’t say for certain but Leyton Orient are a big club who’ve come up, Salford are going to throw money at it again to try and go on another level after four or five promotions that have preceded this year.
“And then the teams that have come down. Plymouth are a big club, Bradford are a big club for this league, then you’ve got Walsall and Scunthorpe who have spent many years above League Two.
He added: “It’s going to be a really competitive league. But that is good for the boys as they will be pitting themselves against bigger clubs and a slightly better quality of player than they have come up against on some occasions this year. They have got to take that as a real challenge and hopefully it will push everybody on to thrive and do better.”
