"There's More To Come From Goalscoring Duo" - Gaffer

30 July 2022

Goalscorers Dan Agyei and Lachlan Brook are only just getting started.

That's the verdict of manager Alex Morris, who believes the duo that gunned down Rochdale in Crewe Alexandra's opening day win can still bring more to the table.

Agyei broke the deadlock on 14 minutes when he rose and powered home a header from Callum Ainley's pinpoint free-kick delivery.

And Brook marked his debut for the club when he doubled the advantage on 22 minutes, after receiving an Ainley pass and drilling home from just outside the box.

The boss said both players have been working hard at their games and there is room for improvement despite an impressive start.

"Dan is in the best shape he’s ever been in," said Alex.

"We’ve worked him hard over pre-season so that he becomes a 90-minute player rather than a 70-minute one.

"He has shown that he’s not just about running in behind or taking players on, but that he can head the ball as well. He's made a great start and I think he can still do more.

"With Lachlan, I’d have preferred him to take his second chance, the one where he missed near the six-yard box, because we have been telling him to get inside the pitch more often when the ball is on the opposite side to him.

"We want him to get close-range tap-ins and end up in the goal with the ball. We know he can score the type of goal that he did get but we want to add variety. If he does that he will get in double figures and will be a great asset to the club."
