Crewe Alexandra’s Man-of-the-Match from the weekend, Stephen Walker, says that the 2-0 win over our Cheshire neighbours Macclesfield Town was the perfect way to erase what happened at Plymouth the previous week.
Crewe placed that disappointment at Home Park firmly behind them to bounce back with a 7th straight home win – our best run since 1992 at Gresty Road.
Walker netted his first senior goal to give the cushion of a second goal heading into the half time interval and the on-loan youngster from Middlesbrough says his job won’t be achieved until he is celebrating a promotion with his new team-mates.
Following the comfortable 2-0 win over the Silkmen, Walker told the club’s official website: “It was the perfect way to bounce back from the Plymouth game. We wanted the three points and it was a good win.
“We got on the ball in the first half and created a lot of chances. We had chances to score more.
“I think the first goal was important because it meant that Macclesfield had to come out a bit because they played five at the back and very compact. They were organised and made it a bit difficult but we broke them down and were able to play our game.
“It was nice to score my first senior goal, especially with the family there and it has been a long time coming!
“Everyone has helped me settle quickly and the fans have been great. When they sing my name, it gives me a real boost and helps the confidence, so I wanted to show my appreciation when I scored. It came after half an hour and I got booked, but it was well worth it!
“I am part of the club now and I want to be a part of the Crewe history and if I can be a part of a promotion winning team and play my part then that is what I am here for.
Stephen added: “I am not here for myself and looking at my own game. I want to help this club and the lads in the dressing room get to League One and when I am wearing the Crewe shirt I will give everything I have got.”
