"It Felt Normal In The Technical Area"

19 April 2022

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.”
