"Championship Opposition Will Provide Different Challenges"

13 July 2022

Lunt says West Brom and Rotherham will post different type of test in and out of possession.

Kenny Lunt says that there are a substantial number of good things to take from the pre-season games so far, but the club’s Player Development Coach adds there is still room for improvement both in and out of possession.

The Alex now have three really testing friendly games left against Championship opponents West Bromwich Albion and Rotherham at our Mornflake Stadium home and a behind closed-doors warm up against Belgium side Lommel SK.

Crewe are preparing for the opening day of the season at Rochdale and will take in some days at Loughborough University as part of their preparation and to enjoy a change of scenery in terms of training.

Lunt told the club’s official website: “We have been pleased with aspects of our play, but there is still work to do. We have to work on when to press and when to drop off and use our brains to sit in and counter attack. That may well be the case at times in the games against West Brom and Rotherham because they will be good in possession. It is a good test for all our players.

“It is all about building those relationships out on the training ground and taking it on to the pitch. As a team, it is about working on controlling games better and managing the different situations that can arise. The players are learning all the time and their application has been very good all the way through pre-season.

“There is time to work on a number of things but I’m sure that Alex, Lee and the rest of the staff will make sure we are prepared as we possibly can be when we go to Rochdale on the opening day of the season.”
