"We Go To Lincoln With Expectation Now Rather Than Just Hope"

28 April 2022

Interim boss says there has been a switch in mindset thanks to recent performances.

Alex Morris believes that there has been a shifting of the players’ mindset following that comeback win against AFC Wimbledon that came in his first game in temporary charge. Crewe came back from 1-0 down to win 3-1 and end a run of eight straight defeats with our relegation confirmed with a 2-0 loss at Doncaster Rovers.

That disappointing show at the Keepmoat Stadium proved to be David Artell’s last game in charge. Morris stepped up from his role as assistant to replace him and a mini-revival has seen Crewe collect four points from three games and only concede three goals.

Ahead of our final game of a disappointing season at Lincoln, the interim boss told “I think there has been a shift in their thinking and there needed to be. We will go into the final game of the season at Lincoln expecting to win, not hoping to win.

“A couple of months ago that probably wasn’t the case. We would be hoping to win or to get a positive result. Now that we have achieved some things in the last three games, coming from behind to pick up points and only conceding three goals, some of that belief and confidence has returned.

“We want to go to Lincoln and compete like we have done in the last three games. We want to end on a positive and take that into the summer because we have got to push on and hit the ground running next season.”
