Kenny Lunt admits that it has been a hard re-introduction to the new season, especially in the wake of losing some key players over the last few months.
The club’s assistant manager is hopeful that once settle down and the club can add a few new faces to help bolster the squad, the performances will reach a better standard coming into September.
Crewe’s league game against Morecambe has been postponed due to the Shrimpers having players away on International duty and Lunt says the time will be well spent out on the training ground.
Kenny told the club’s official website: “We have had a tough set of fixtures and had some travelling involved but that is football and you have to cope with that. That is not an excuse and we are the first to admit that certain relationships haven’t clicked.
“We have had to make changes in every game or every other game and had to cope with a lot, so hopefully when things settle down a bit and we can two or three more in to help us then hopefully the standard of play will improve.
“We know we haven’t created as many chances as we would have liked, that is something we will go through and work on in training over the next 10 days following the Shrewsbury game.
“The one positive from the Charlton game was that the performance was better and we managed to make their goalkeeper make some saves. It was better from us, especially in the second half but we need to be more consistent.
Lunt added: “We will do the work out on the training and talk to the players and show them where we can all improve. I am sure we will get there through that hard work.”
