Chuma: "Great To Have A Game So Soon To Bounce Back"

17 September 2019

Chuma Anene is delighted that Crewe Alexandra have another match this evening after losing 3-2 to Cambridge United at the weekend in very controversial circumstances.

The Railwaymen lost influential midfielder Paul Green to a red card just before half-time - but we showed great character to fight back to go 2-1 ahead with Anene scoring his first goal for the club.

An extremely dubious penalty given by referee David Rock swung the points back into Cambridge’s favour to leave the Alex frustrated.

Anene says that Saturday has now past and that the dressing room will be aiming to get back on track away at Leyton Orient this evening.

The on-loan forward told the club’s official website: “The lads showed great character to go 2-1 up with ten men and we thought we did enough to have got something from the game but unfortunately some decisions went against us.

“They were key decisions and we didn’t feel they were justified. I think everyone saw what happened but I think everyone should be proud of what we did in that second half with a man less.

“That’s football and you quickly move on. The good thing is there is another game against Leyton Orient and we are able to turn things around very quickly.

“I am like any other player, if you have a bad game or a result goes against you, you just want to get back out there and show people what we are about again.

“Leyton Orient came up from the non-league last season but they were a league team before that for many years.  They will be a test in London but we are focussed on getting the three points.

Chuma added: “If we can play like we have been doing in the recent games, when we have dominated the possession and created chances then I am sure we will get the result we are all looking for after Cambridge on Saturday.”
