Assistant boss says consistency cost us a late challenge for a possible play off plae
Crewe Alexandra’s assistant manager, Kenny Lunt, says it has been an encouraging past season but it is tinged with disappointment at falling just 8 points outside of a play-off place.
Crewe ended the season in the top half of the table but Lunt says opportunities were there to make a genuine push for the top six.
Lunt told crewealex.net: “Overall it was a pleasing season but we just lacked that little bit of consistency to really push on. There were too many games where we didn’t take our chances and get the points we probably deserved.
“We played some quality football at times and I think the fans would have enjoyed the way we have wanted to play.
“We have enjoyed it in League One and the lads have done reasonably well but we have to keep on improving and aim to do better next season.
“We have had a few injuries to some key players, Callum was out for a long time, so was Luke Offord and we lost (Oli) Finney for half the season, so it has been tough and that didn’t do our chances of breaking into that top six any favours either.
“We have also been able to sell a couple of players (Ng and Pickering) to the Championship, and that is always an indication of how well the team has done over the last couple of seasons.”
