Beckles: "No Time To Panic But We Also Need to Liven Up Too"

5 November 2020

Alex defender Omar Beckles believes he knows the standard of League One well enough to know that Crewe Alexandra will soon turn the corner. The former Shrewsbury Town defender says he ‘prides himself on clean-sheets’ and was bitterly disappointed to lose our third consecutive game 1-0 to Gillingham on Tuesday evening.  

The 29-year-old who joined Crewe in the summer has certainly helped the goals against column this season, and although the centre-half says it is not time to panic, we need to get better in both boxes and quickly.

Talking ahead of our FA Cup tie at Bolton this weekend, Omar told “It has been tough and everyone is bitterly disappointed that we have not got more points on the board than we have.

"We have to put away some of the chances we have been creating and start building on the good performances. There are good signs there and I’m sure it will come good.

“You have to take the positives and have that positive energy. If we were not creating chances and lost that game 1-0 against Gillingham then I would be panicking but we created enough chances to have won comfortably.

“It is not the time to panic but on the other hand we have to liven up and do better. The lads are frustrated and disappointed but everyone is working even harder and remains determined to turn it around.

Omar added: “I’ve played in this league long enough to know that with the boys we have here in the dressing room, it will come together. It will turn around and those narrow losses will turn into wins but that needs to happen sooner rather than later.”
