Agyei Looking Forward To Facing His Former Club This Evening

22 February 2022

Can new forward dent his former club's promotion hopes and keep our hopes of staying in the division alive?

Crewe Alexandra’s Dan Agyei faces his former club Oxford United this evening with the 24-year-old admitting he has a ‘point to prove’.

The hard working Agyei joined Crewe on an 18-month contract in January from Karl Robinson’s U’s and he has already registered his first goal for the club with that late consolation goal away at Accrington Stanley.

Agyei scored 11 goals in 93 appearances for Oxford over two and half seasons after rejecting a contract offer from Burnley to sign for them in August 2019.

Ahead of facing his former club tonight, Daniel told “I have settled in well at Crewe. The lads have been good, the staff are all friendly and helpful and the fans have been great with me, so that has not been a problem at all.

“It has been disappointing that the results have not gone the way we would have wanted so far, but I feel we are beginning to gel as a team and there is a enough quality here to get on a run and get out of the bottom places. I really believe that.

“It was nice to get that first goal. It is always good as a striker to get that first goal as quickly as possible when you do go into a new club. I managed to do that at Accrington and now I want a few more before the end of the season to help the team get some results.”

Although his future now lies away from Oxford, he is still a keen admirer of the way they play and will come up against some good friends this evening.

Dan told us: “Oxford are going well and they should be there or thereabouts again. They are a good side, who like to attack. They scored four against Charlton at the weekend and are the top scorers in the division, so we know they will want to come and attack us, but we also have some attack-minded players as well.

"We will have to try and get at their defence as much as they will look to get at us and it should be a good game.

“We need the points for different reasons to them and with it being my former club, of course you want to play well and I want to prove a bit of a point.

He added: “There are 14 games to go and we need to start winning games and if we can become harder to beat at home and pick up the majority of our points there, then that will give us the best chance.”
