Ng: "That One Was Tough To Take"

2 November 2020

Skipper says performance gave us heart but he is disappointed that lapse from corner cost us points.

Club captain Perry Ng says that Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Ipswich Town was a ‘tough one to take’ but that we have to learn lessons from the defeat.

Crewe were unfortunate to come away from Portman Road without anything to show for our efforts but exit pointless we did and Ng says that we have to quickly put it behind us and prepare for Gillingham tomorrow evening.

Ng told the club’s official website: “Ipswich was a tough one to take for all of us because we felt we played well and deserved something from the game, but the most important thing is the points and we didn’t get any.

“The performance was there but we didn’t take our chances and we gave a really sloppy goal away, which is something we have to stop doing.

“I think we went back to basics a bit and it helped the performance. We had worked hard on it all week and we felt we were unfortunate not to have won the game, never mind to end up losing it.

“The gaffer said afterwards to the group, that if we play like that every week then we will be fine and we think we will be. It is just about taking those chances and being that little bit better at the back.

“We have another game against Gillingham coming up, so we can take what we need from Ipswich and go again.

He added: “We have lost two games 1-0 on the bounce against teams that are right up there, so we will be looking to beat Gillingham and get some momentum going again.”
