Interim manager Alex Morris says it felt totally normal to be in the technical area for his first 90 minutes in charge of the first-team.
Morris took charge for the first time in a temporary capacity against AFC Wimbledon following the dismissal of David Artell a week ago.
Crewe fought back from 1-0 down to win 3-1 and record only a seventh win of a disappointing campaign. The Railwaymen now head to play-off hunting Sheffield Wednesday for our mid-week encounter.
Alex told the club’s official website: “If I am honest it felt normal to be in the technical area. It was another game in front of me and it was a case of just of preparing the team as well as we could.
“The actual matchday and what that entails was nothing new. I have done it over many years as manager of the Under-23s and of course been closer to it as the assistant manager, albeit for a short period.
“There is that extra responsibility that comes with taking the first-team, but I have some great people to bounce off. We all discuss things as a collective and come to the conclusion together.
He added: “That is how we approach things and that is how we will prepare for Sheffield Wednesday. We know it will be more of a transition game than a possession game at Hillsborough because of the calibre of opposition but we will go with the mind-set of being competitive and looking to win the game.”
