Alex Morris says there were plenty of things to be pleased with following Saturday’s fairly comfortable 3-0 win over Nantwich Town, but he also stressed that there is still plenty to work on during pre-season.
The Crewe Alexandra manager was pleased with the way his side kept possession for large periods of the game and says that his players rose to the challenge he set to regain the ball back within 10 seconds. If that wasn’t achieved then that equated to a run at half-time or full-time.
Morris told the club’s official website: “There was plenty to be pleased with but still plenty to work on.
“We set the players a little challenge and target to reach in the game. They had to regain possession within 10 seconds and if that wasn’t achieved then that equated to a run either at half-time or at the end of the game.
“The players actually got under the projected number of runs, so that was very pleasing. We will continue to set these little challenges in the pre-season to add a bit of pressure to their performance
“We know what the objective is throughout the season and that is to try and get the three points in every game we play, or certainly aim to do that.
He added: “In the pre-season it allows us to form some good habits and take them with us into the season. “
