Pickering admits 'we weren't ourselves at Peterborough'
Crewe Alexandra captain, Harry Pickering, says it is important that the Railwaymen return to winning ways at Swindon Town this weekend. The club’s home game against Portsmouth at the weekend was postponed due to a frozen pitch and Pickering believes that the team have to bounce back with a positive result at the County Ground after losing 2-0 to Peterborough in our last fixture.
The 22-year-old full-back, who is currently on loan at Crewe from Blackburn Rovers, told the club’s official website: “We have to keep going and stay in touch with the clubs above us. It is still tight and there are a few teams with games in hand but all we can do is look after our results.
“We have to keep working hard and continue to get results on the board. I think we have done okay so far but there is plenty of room for improvement from all areas.
“With the players we have got here and the players we have managed to bring in last month, we still have a real chance of achieving something this season.
“We have got to keep it going and we need another big performance at the weekend after what happened at Peterborough. We weren’t ourselves that day and got punished for our own mistakes.
“We have to put another performance in and make sure we get the three points.”
